Climate and Health

Combating climate change requires an integrated, regional response that builds on the shared vision and leadership of the region’s public, private and civic sectors, as well as the participation of all communities that live, learn, work, and play in the region. Benton County is in a unique position to advance solutions that address climate change.

2023 Climate and Health Adaptation Plan of Lincoln and Benton Counties

The plan aims to engage and empower the community to address the impacts of climate change on the people in our region, and build a more resilient and prepared community.

“We invite everyone in our communities to collaborate with us on adaptation actions that will strengthen our overall resilience.”
