Vermont Climate Change Adaptation Program Evaluation
Client(s): CDC - Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Vermont Department of Health
Service: Applied Research & Evaluation
Applying the CDC's Building Resilience Against Climate Effects (BRACE) framework, the VT Climate and Health program has initiated planning to implement and evaluate interventions and adaptation strategies to reduce climate-related health risks. Interventions will focus primarily on the six priority health concerns identified in the Climate and Health Adaptation Plan, and will be targeted towards people and places most vulnerable to experiencing each health impact.
JSI is supporting this evaluation effort by building evaluation capacity for program staff and stakeholders, compiling evaluation plans, and providing technical assistance for selection and development of monitoring and evaluation strategies. Evaluation efforts will be designed to measure the efficacy of interventions and help contribute to the development of a national database of evidence-based interventions.
