Alliance of Regional Collaboratives for Climate Adaptation (ARCCA)

LARC is a proud founding member of the Alliance of Regional Collaboratives for Climate Adaptation (ARCCA)

The Alliance of Regional Collaboratives for Climate Adaptation (ARCCA) is a network comprised of existing regional collaboratives from across California. ARCCA’s members represent leading regional collaboratives that are already coordinating and supporting climate adaptation efforts in their own regions in order to enhance public health, protect natural systems, build economies, and improve quality of life.

California's Alliance of Regional Collaboratives for Climate Adaptation (ARCCA) was formed in early 2012 out of the urgent need to prepare California’s urban centers for the emerging impacts of climate change, including extreme storm events, heat waves, droughts, and sea level rise. ARCCA currently brings together five regional collaboratives that are coordinating and supporting local climate partners in projects to enhance public health, protect natural systems, build economies, and improve the quality of life in all communities.

Through ARCCA, member regional collaboratives have come together to amplify and solidify their individual efforts, as well as to give a stronger voice to regionalism at the state and federal levels. ARRCA members share information among regions on best practices and lessons learned; identify each region’s most innovative and successful strategies; and then determine how these strategies could be adapted to another region’s particular needs. As a result, ARRCA bolsters the efforts of member regional collaboratives and empowers those interested in forging new regional partnerships.
