Vermont Adaptation White Papers

This compilation of nine white papers includes an introduction to the climate science and impacts relevant to Vermont and eight sector-specific reports in the areas of Agriculture, Water Resources, Recreation, Forestry, Public Health, Public Safety, Fish and Wildlife, and Transportation.  Each sector report provides an overview of the climate impacts and vulnerabilities facing that sector, what programs are already in place to address those challenges, prospective adaptation strategies, and policy recommendations. Sector reports were primarily released in the March - June 2011 timeframe and are available on Vermont's Agency of Natural Resources Climate Change website.

These papers are no longer available through Vermont's Agency of Natural Resources, but we provide an archived link here. 

The papers are also available through this link:
