Abstract

This report describes how anticipated impacts of climate change on transportation infrastructure in the Hampton Roads region of Virginia were assessed via a decision model to help prioritize elements of the region’s long range strategic plan. This study is part of a larger effort by the United States Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to understand the vulnerability of critical transportation infrastructure in several regions.

National adaptation planning is a critical component of climate resilient development. While many adaptation actions will be taken at a local level, it is at the national level that priorities for development and adaptation are set, and coordination is conducted with donors. National governments also make many important decisions regarding taxes, expenditures, regulations, land-use, and other aspects of national policy making that can profoundly affect a nation’s development path.

Abstract

This report from the Australian nonprofit Enliven outlines the various impacts of climate change on people with disabilities and their carers (i.e. family or personal attendants), and actions that can be taken to minimize or withstand those impacts. It brings together evidence, concerns, concepts, and arguments from a wide array of climate change, disability, and disaster management fields. It also explores theories of justice in general and then shapes them into its policy recommendations.
