Tool Overview: 

The Climate Impacts Decision Support Tool (CIMPACT-DST) is an easy-to-use, Excel-based decision support tool that helps planning agencies and local governments incorporate climate change impacts into their jurisdiction’s planning and operations. By using CIMPACT-DST, urban planners and project developers can see policies, plans, regulations, and projects through a “climate lens.”

Abstract

Federal agencies with responsibility for natural resource management are mandated to consider climate change in planning and projects, and to begin preparing for the effects of climate change. Federal agencies are making significant progress in climate change adaptation, although lack of financial resources has slowed implementation of climate-focused activities. Currently, most agencies have broad-scale strategic plans that describe approaches and priorities for climate change in general and for adaptation in particular.

Abstract

Crops and forests are under increasing pressure from weeds, insects, and diseases as a consequence of variable weather and a changing climate. Additionally, much forest management in the Midwest relies on natural regeneration of primary tree species, which is jeopardized in many boreal and drought-intolerant species. Therefore, understanding the implications of changing weather patterns and variability is critical to the effective management of agricultural and forest systems.

Abstract

The San Juan Bay (Puerto Rico) National Estuary Program used EPA’s publication, “Being Prepared for Climate Change: A Workbook for Developing Risk-Based Adaptation Plans” to create a risk-based climate change vulnerability assessment. This video describes some climate change impacts that are already affecting San Juan, documents why the San Juan Bay National Estuary Program undertook this vulnerability assessment project, and explains the benefits of conducting the study.

Abstract

This report provides community members and decision-makers throughout the Sierra Nevada with local climate change projections that can help them make educated planning decisions. We also provide supplementary information from the scientific literature. This report is intended to precede a vulnerability assessment and development of adaptation strategies for stakeholders in the Sierra Nevada.

Project Summary

The Vulnerability Assessment and Adaptation Strategies for Focal Resources of the Sierra Nevada project, a joint effort between EcoAdapt and the U.S. Forest Service (USFS), assessed the vulnerability of Sierra Nevada resources to both climate and non-climate stressors and developed adaptation strategies designed to reduce resource vulnerability and/or enhance resource resilience.

Abstract

The need for municipalities, regional planning organizations, the state and federal agencies to increase resilience and adapt to extreme weather events and mounting natural hazards is strikingly evident along the coast of Connecticut. Recent events such as Tropical Storm Irene, the Halloween Snow Storm, and Storm Sandy have reinforced this urgency and compelled leading communities like the Town of Madison to proactively plan and mitigate potential risks through a community-driven process.
