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. Finally, after the assessment stage, Temperate will suggest possible actions the user might take to address the risk, based on a database of strategies currently being used by a subset of US cities. Best of all, Temperate users can get advice and support from the experienced adaptation planners at ICLEI-USA, at any stage of the process.


Small- to mid-sized cities.
