Water Utility Climate Alliance – 2017–2021 Strategic Plan

The Water Utility Climate Alliance (WUCA) formed in 2007 to provide leadership and collaboration on climate change issues facing the nation’s water agencies. This coalition, guided by a previous five-year strategic plan and annual work plans, has developed into a credible voice on climate adaptation issues, and is often asked to provide a decision maker’s perspective on the climate challenge to researchers and government agencies investing in the nation’s resilience
