Abstract

This book serves as a guide for local governments and private enterprises
as they navigate the unchartered waters of investing in climate change
adaptation and resilience. This book serves not only as a resource guide
for identifying potential funding sources but also as a roadmap for asset
management and public fi nance processes. It highlights practical synergies
between funding mechanisms, as well as the confl icts that may arise between
varying interests and strategies. While the main focus of this work is on the
State of California, this book offers broader insights for how states, local
governments and private enterprises can take those critical fi rst steps in
investing in society's collective adaptation to climate change.
