Description: 

Applications accepted throughout the year. CSU aids local rural communities, connected through a peer learning network, by offering training, expertise, and support in climate adaptation planning. Through this training, expertise, and support, CSU strengthens local leadership, public engagement, and ecosystem protection efforts in rural communities. CSU is offering two distance‐learning programs in 2013; the Climate Adaptation Plan Development Program and the Climate Adaptation Plan Implementation Program. The development program results in a local climate adaptation plan (focusing on forest and water resource resilience). The implementation plan supports participants in moving the plan into action. Each program has 8 positions available. Each participating community receives $100K in training, mentoring, and access to tools/resources; however, communities must commit a cost-share in the form of staff time and related resources.
