Print | Front Page | Email this story

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama wants local government officials to prepare their communities now for the effects of climate change.

Obama is meeting with state and tribal leaders on Wednesday at the White House. The White House says they'll discuss how the federal government can help them be more resilient to climate change. It's the fourth and final meeting of the 26-person task force.

Obama is also announcing new federal resources to help communities prepare. Some of the funds will help rural communities dealing with drought and help Native American tribes train their officials to deal with climate change. The funding will also promote development of three-dimensional mapping of the U.S. for use in flood and erosion mitigation.
