Adaptation work: 

<p>FHWA believes that the impacts of climate change need to be taken into account as transportation systems are planned and as transportation projects are developed. There are several initiatives underway designed to develop information, tools, and procedures necessary to support the consideration of the impacts of climate change.</p><p><a href="http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/environment/climate_change/adaptation/ongoing_an... of FHWA Climate Adaptation Initiatives</strong></a> (as of February 2014)</p>

Project Summary/Overview

To help practitioners learn from the experience of others the Adaptation Good Practice (AGP) project was designed to provide tangible, practical, real-life examples of adaptation processes or activities that could be used to leverage or model practices in other jurisdictions or organizations.

Sixteen exemplar case studies and nominated examples of AGP from across Australia have been produced to help guide future actions. They cover different levels of government, industry, approaches at a variety of spatial scales, and initiatives being taken at different phases of adaptation research, planning, and implementation.

Adaptation work: 

<p>Under Executive Order No. 13514 and Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) Implementing Instructions, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) is required to submit a Climate Adaptation Plan for implementation in 2013. The DOT released their Climate Adaptation Plan in April 2013 which includes the departments commitments for Fiscal Years 2012 and 2013 and lays out next steps they will take integrate climate change into policies, programs, and, operations moving forward.
