Preparing Missoula County for a Changing Climate

A report on socioeconomic conditions of Missoula County as part of public process of developing a climate change adaptation plan.

Climate change is a real and growing concern for Missoula County.  To learn more and involve the community, Headwaters Economics–in cooperation with the Clark Fork Coalition and the Geos Institute–recently convened a Climatewise Workshop.

At the workshop, local experts and residents learned about the latest climate science and potential risks for Missoula County, and applied their local knowledge and experience to identify strategies to prepare for possible changes.
