Actions for the Joint Platform are being developed through three Working Groups
Each Working Group are co-chaired by two leaders involved in Bay Area adaptation with staffing support from BCDC and other agencies and non-profit organizations.
Working Groups include various subject matter experts and perspectives, striving for diverse, inter-disciplinary expertise. Working Groups recommend consensus-based actions for the Joint Platform.
Each of the three Working Groups will be responding to a major guiding question:
Regional Consistency:What are the necessary steps to ensure that Bay Area jurisdictions plan together toward shared regional outcomes?
Co-chairs: Caitlin Sweeney, San Francisco Estuary Partnership, and John Coleman, Bay Planning Coalition
Local Planning: How can we support local adaptation planning in a way that is consistent and accessible to resource-constrained local jurisdictions?
Co-chairs: Jack Liebster, Marin County, Brian Beveridge, West Oakland Environmental Indicators
Project Implementation: How can we expedite the delivery of high-quality adaptation projects?
Co-chairs: Jeremy Lowe, San Francisco Estuary Institute, and Erika Powell, Coastal Hazards Adaptation Resiliency Group (CHARG)
