As communities throughout California’s inland southern region experience devastating wildfires, droughts, and extreme heat, a new regional collaborative
launches to coordinate and accelerate local responses to climate change. The Inland Southern California Climate Collaborative (ISC3) is a diverse, cross-sectoral network of agencies, organizations, companies, and institutions working together to advance equitable solutions to create a resilient and thriving Inland Southern California in the face of climate change. Through collective action, ISC3 strives to bolster local and regional efforts to avoid the worst effects of climate change while building resilience to the climate
change impacts communities face today.
This new collaborative comes at a critical time when the impacts of climate change continue to pose serious threats to communities in Riverside, San Bernardino, and Imperial counties. The region is expected to see daily maximum temperatures increase by 8-14˚F and areas burned by wildfires increase by 60-75% by end of century, according to California’s Fourth Climate Change Assessment. Urgent action must be taken to safeguard communities against these impacts, which directly threaten public health and safety, as well as the region’s infrastructure, economic development, and water supply.
