Natural Resources Working Group

Pennsylvania’s Climate Change Action Plan, which was mandated by Act 70 and completed in December 2009, recommended that not only mitigation strategies, but also adaptation strategies be developed to address climate change. As a result, four working-groups – Natural Resources, Infrastructure, Human Health, and Tourism and Outdoor Recreation - were established to identify climate change risks, vulnerabilities, and ways to address them. As part of that process the Natural Resources workgroup developed a climate change adaptation plan that addresses forests, agriculture, freshwater systems and plants/wildlife.
