Between wildfires, floods, drought, and extreme heat events, the Bay Area has broken virtually every climate record over the past decade. The Bay Area Council’s Water & Climate Resilience Committee develops and implements policies to make the Bay Area the most climate-resilient coastal region in the world.


2022 Goals

Goal 1: Strengthen Regional Drought Resilience

Goal 2: Improve regional wildfire resilience
