The Model Forest Policy Program

Bringing Climate Services to Underserved Rural Communities

Recipient: The Model Forest Policy Program

Project Partners: International City/County Management Association, EcoAdapt, Geos Institute, NOAA

An impressive collaborative effort of the Model Forest Policy Program (MFPP), the International City/County Management Association (ICMA), the Geos Institute, EcoAdapt, and the NOAA Climate Program Office, this team will work to accelerate climate resilience action in small, rural communities by co-producing and beta-testing a rural climate resilience training module, building sustainable funding support for adaptation service providers, and catalyzing action for adaptation strategies in communities where climate resources and guidance remain scarce.
