Abstract

The goal of this NOAA Fisheries Climate Science Strategy (Strategy) is to increase the production, delivery, and use of climate-related information required to fulfill NOAA Fisheries mandates. Although the information needed to understand, prepare for, and respond to climate change impacts on LMRs is diverse, this Strategy identifies seven common objectives to efficiently and effectively meet these information requirements. The seven objectives are:

Abstract

In late July 2013, the Island Institute hosted a workshop with approximately 110 fishermen, scientists, managers, policy makers, non-governmental organizations, and others in Portland, Maine. The goal—to discuss the latest science of climate change and the ocean, as well as changes fishermen are seeing at sea. The workshop focused on improving our collective understanding of how climate change is impacting New England fisheries and fishermen.

Abstract

This paper is intended as a reference document—a “science summary”— for the Ecosystems, Species, and Habitats Topic Advisory Group (TAG), which is one of four topic groups working with state agencies to prepare a statewide Integrated Climate Change Response Strategy. The climate change response strategy was initiated by the state legislature (SB 5560) to help the state adapt to climate change.

Pending moderation

Abstract

A new report from the Government of Uganda with support from CDKN, Baastel, Metroeconomica, Makerere University and CIDT, finds that adaptation to climate change today is well worth the investment. The costs of inaction on climate change by 2025 are 20 times the costs of adaptation.

Key research findings from Adapting to Climate Change in China project Phase I (2009-2014): communicating data.

Abstract

The DHS CCA Roadmap fulfills the Executive Order (EO) 13514, Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy and Economic Performance (October 2009) requirement for all Federal Agencies to reinforce and comply with the U.S. Government’s efforts to develop a national climate change adaptation strategy and, as such, is the Department’s supporting adaptation plan.

Abstract

CCVA Report - Part 1 presents the results of "climate stress test" on the city of Cambridge, MA.  The vulnerability assessment focuses on risks related to rising tempertures and greater precipitation.  The science-based assessment was conducted in an interdisciplinary manner with extensive communitya stakeholder engagement.

Abstract

This report was developed by the North Carolina Interagency Leadership Team (ILT), a group of eleven state and federal agencies, to communicate to planners and engineers, working for the public and private sectors, about the potential effects and risks due to changes in climate and extreme weather events, as well as strategies for considering those effects and risks in planning, design and implementation of projects.

Abstract

In his Climate Action Plan, President Barack Obama acknowledged the risks of climate change to families, businesses, infrastructure, and water supplies across the country. To help metro areas manage these risks, the president pledged to reduce flood damage by raising flood elevation standards for federally funded infrastructure projects, to support community resilience through existing federal grant programs, and to make climate change information more accessible, among other actions.

Abstract

Significant progress has been made in developing scientific principles and tools for adapting to climate change through science-management partnerships focused on education, assessment of vulnerability of natural resources, and development of adaptation strategies and tactics. In addition, climate change has motivated increased use of bioenergy and carbon (C) sequestration policy options as mitigation strategies, emphasizing the effects of climate change-human interactions on forests, as well as the role of forests in mitigating climate change.
