    CDC takes the lead in supporting state, tribal, local, and territorial public health agencies to Climate-Ready States and Cities Initiative is helping 16 states and two cities develop ways to anticipate the health effects of climate change by applying the best climate science available, predicting health impacts, and preparing programs to protect the communities served (https://www.cdc.gov/climateandhealth/about.htm). To aid public health professionals with developing adaptation plans, CDC created a framework for developing local climate change adaptation plans to manage health effects. It is called Building Resilience Against Climate Effects (BRACE).

    The BRACE framework guides health departments in preparing for and responding to climate change. In approaching the health implications of climate change, we must find ways to understand and incorporate complex data, coupled with both short- and longrange climate projections, into public health planning and response activities. These projections and analysis enable a community to effectively foresee, prepare for, and respond to an array of climate-sensitive health impacts (https://www.cdc.gov/climateandhealth/climate_ready.hThe BRACE framework is a five-step series that helps health departments to identify how climate has and will affect human health. It enables health departments to undertake a systematic, evidence-based process to customize their planning and response to local circumstances. The value of BRACE is that it provides opportunities for health departments to understand their c associated with climate-related exposure. states and cities to develop and implement localized strategies and programs to confront the health implications of climate change.
