TOP REVIEWS FROM PLANNING WITH CLIMATE CHANGE IN MIND
Really nice instruction on how to tap into further planning resources, both government and private. Very useful information!
Very interesting topic which will definitely influence not only my commitment to climate change, risks and mitigations but on a personal level as well.
