RegionsAdapt 2017 Report: Regions Accelerating Climate Change and Adaptation

When RegionsAdapt was launched in December 2015, at COP21, its founding members shared a general feeling that bolder action was needed to shed light on the contributions of regional governments to climate change adaptation. Hence, the creation of this initiative aimed at balancing mitigation and adaptation within the scope of actions undertaken by regional governments on the international stage, as well as stressing the importance of these actors within the global adaptation agenda.

This document is comprised of two main sections. The first one outlines the essential information collected through CDP's states and regions platform in the context of RegionsAdapt́s most recent reporting process. The second section of the present report encompasses an assessment review of the initiative ́s first two years and briefly portrays its envisaged future.

Temperate- Your climate adaptation planning companion

Tool Overview: 

Temperate is designed to help cities move through the process of climate change adaptation planning, including exploring climate hazards, creating vulnerability assessments, and crafting action plans. Using available temperature and precipitation climate projections for the user's location, Temperate will suggest potential future climate hazards that may be of significance. After exploring potential hazards, Temperate walks users through assessing each hazard's possible impact on various community systems.

Climate Change Field Guide for Northern Minnesota Forests: Site-level considerations and adaptation

Tool Overview: 

This field guide is designed as a quick reference on climate change for northern Minnesota forests. The intent is to highlight key information that can be used during field visits or forest planning. We hope that this guide will help foresters consider climate change risks together with local site characteristics, and also that it will help people design adaptation actions that help meet management goals.
