New UC-backed research is helping California communities respond to the climate crisis
UC announced 38 California Climate Action Grants in August as part of a partnership between the university and the state of California. Using $80M in state funds, we’re administering two-year climate resilience projects in every part of California, tackling wildfire, water, health, biodiversity, sea level rise, clean energy and disaster response. And researchers are teaming up with experts from California communities on the front lines of climate change to design solutions that will protect people’s health, homes and livelihoods.
“The scale, breadth and immediacy of these grants will transform California’s response to the climate crisis,” said Theresa Maldonado, UC vice president for research and innovation. “Each project was selected because of its potential to get research-based information, practices and resources into the hands of Californians that need it most, and communities will start seeing these tangible benefits within a matter of months.”
