 NACCHO Climate Change Toolkit



Climate change is impacting the public health of our communities. We are witnessing an increase in extreme heat and precipitation events across the country. Emerging diseases like dengue fever are on the rise. Local health departments can take actions now to effectively protect their communities by preparing and responding to the health effects of climate change.


The NACCHO Climate Change Toolkit is designed to provide tools and resources to help local public health practitioners plan for and address the health effects of climate change in their jurisdictions. This toolkit contains tools and examples to help local health departments with climate change strategic planning, conducting vulnerability assessments, communicating about climate change, adapting to the effects of climate change, and more.
