Rural Climate Network

Solutions from the Ground

The intent of this working document is to describe climate change concerns specific to rural communities in the United States and identify policy approaches that are supportive of on-the-ground solutions. It reflects ideas and input from Rural Climate Network member organizations and other rural organizations, leaders and experts in the U.S. This is a starting point; additional input, perspectives and policy solutions are welcomed, as are questions, inquiries and endorsements.
