In June 2022, Albemarle County published their Climate Vulnerability and Risk Assessment report. This research report, a year in the making, was funded by Piedmont Environmental Council, and developed by Resilient Virginia and Sobis Inc. The report analyzes primary hazards the county will face in the future, who and what will be most vulnerable to the hazards, and what risks will be most likely.
Albemarle County is already working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through its Climate Action Plan and, using this new report, will embark on resilience planning. Look for updates and information on community engagement and education activities by the county at its climate program website.
