How well we plan for climate change today will determine who lives, who dies, and the quality of life people in the United States will have. Climate change’s current and projected impacts to civilization beg a few questions for local governments, state governments, tribal governments, elected officials, and community members involved in planning processes. Firstly, what are our plans missing? In other words, is climate change integrated into our plans and to what extent is it integrated? Secondly, what are our missing plans? In other words, do jurisdictions have climate change-specific plans, and how do they compare to the adaptability standards Indigenous Nations’ plans have set?
