(AUGUSTA) – The Maine Department of Environmental Protection is housing a new Climate Adaptation Toolkit on its website. This new Climate Adaptation Toolkit is a Maine-focused, online reference library that provides community leaders with links to key state, federal, and other climate related documents, climate models, data sources, and technical providers, to assist with the work being done throughout the state. Communities in Maine are making the connection between their daily lives and the changes we are seeing in our region’s climate. Town leaders, engaged citizens, businesses, universities, and state partners are planning and implementing changes into their communities to adapt to climate change, and by doing so building resilience into their communities. This toolkit is designed to assist in those varied efforts.
The Adaptation Toolkit is organized by audience type, for its ease of use, and is for Maine homeowners, business owners, consultants, resource managers, engaged citizens, public officials, and anyone else who is interested in learning about climate change, or accessing information that will help them integrate best practices into their community, home, or place of work.
DEP’s goal is to continue to improve the utility of this toolkit by updating the guidance materials, and engaging with toolkit users directly, to ensure they are getting the key information needed.
