Tools and Templates

Adaptation Planning ToolExposures, Impacts, and Strategies Inventory (EISI) tool (Updated July 14, 2022 BETA VERSION). This is a draft of a customizable companion tool that can support communities that are conducting adaptation planning. Information and data sources are compiled and organized to present information needed at several decision-making steps to help your community prepare to take the most effective actions. We are continuing to build functionality and improve information. The latest update includes more indicators and data sources (national and California specific), including those available from the California Tribal Epidemiology Center (CTEC). A step-by-step guide for using this tool and requesting CTEC data can be found here. Please send questions or comments to
