The Climate Adaptation and Resiliency Program was created by AB109, which amended the Budget Act of 2017 to provide local assistance through the Wildlife Conservation Board for conservation projects focusing on resilience to projected climate impacts.; These projects must be consistent with the State’s climate adaptation strategy (Safeguarding California Plan), contribute to the carbon sequestration goals of AB 32, and support WCB’s Strategic Plan. In addition, projects will be consistent with other statewide plans and priorities, including the California Water Action Plan and California State Wildlife Action Plan 2015 Update. Program funding is directed toward projects that: Protect and restore ecosystems on natural and working lands to provide climate change adaptation and resilience for wildlife.Assist natural and working lands managers in implementing practices that provide climate adaptation and resilience.Increase carbon sequestration in natural and working lands, and provide additional social, economic, and environmental benefits, or "co-benefits".
