Abstract

Climate change adaptation is a risk-management strategy characterized by adjustments to natural or human systems in response to actual or expected climate change.

Abstract

Kirsten Howard and Allie Goldstein, recent graduates of the School of Natural Resources and Environment at the University of Michigan, spent three months traveling around the United States collecting 'stories of climate resilience'--examples of people and places adapting to the impacts of climate change. They visited 31 states and conducted 158 interviews with natural resource managers, climate scientists, farmers, city planners, business owners, artists, and more. This is the 7-minute version of their summer.

Abstract

The Executive Order directs Federal agencies to take a series of steps to make it easier for American communities to strengthen their resilience to extreme weather and prepare for other impacts of climate change.

Abstract

This report was created by Mayor Menino's Climate Preparedness Task Force, a Cabinet-level group convened in February 2013. The report identifies ways in which the City of Boston has and will prepare for the impacts of climate change on municipal operations.

Abstract

Businesses face growing threats from extreme weather and climate change: damage to facilities, loss of water or power supplies, higher costs, and disruption of supply and distribution chains.

In this report, C2ES provides a detailed snapshot of the state of resilience planning among a cross-section of global companies and outlines steps companies can take to better assess and manage their growing climate risks.

Abstract

This study was an activity of the Engineering the Future partnership, carried out on behalf of Defra by The Royal Academy of Engineering, the Institution of Engineering and Technology, the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and the Institution of Chemical Engineers. The conclusions of the study will feed into the Defra led cross-Government Infrastructure and Adaptation project. The study was carried out from the perspective of the engineering profession and the engineering response to the demands of climate change adaptation.

Abstract

This technical report on “Climate Change and Energy Supply and Use” was prepared for the U.S. Department of Energy by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in support of the U.S. National Climate Assessment (NCA).

Abstract

Our climate is changing and we must prepare for these impacts. The Jamestown S’Klallam climate vulnerability assessment and adaptation plan identified key tribal resources, the expected impacts from climate change, and created adaptation strategies for each resource. The sea level rise maps are for three time frames, near (low), mid-century (medium), and end of century (high). The maps cover marine shorelines at the south end of Discovery Bay, south end of Sequim Bay, the Jamestown Beach tribal community, and the shoreline development west of Jamestown to the Dungeness River.

Project Summary

The Wisconsin Initiative on Climate Change Impacts (WICCI) was created to support the efforts of multiple stakeholders charged with identifying vulnerabilities to climate change and developing adaptation strategies. WICCI released an impacts and adaptation strategies assessment in 2011 as a first step toward developing a statewide climate change adaptation strategy.

Abstract

The purpose of this white paper is to provide an overview of climate related adaptation and resilience oriented efforts underway at the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans). In recognition of the potentially negative consequences of climate change to well-being of Vermont, VTrans is in process of incorporating adaptive management, policies, and plans into every level of planning, design, operations, and maintenance.
