Adaptation Capability Advancement Toolkit (ADAPT-CA)

2019

The Adaptation Capability Advancement (Adapt-CA) Toolkit was developed to support local government climate change adaptation initiatives through an agency self-assessment process on institutional capacity. Adapt-CA helps to identify opportunities to build capacity for adaptation integration into local government agency’s operations, leadership, technical capacity and engagement. The tool was designed for California communities, but is relevant and can be useful to local governments throughout country.

Northeast Florida Regional Resilience Exposure Tool

The Regional Resilience Exposure Tool (R2ET) is an interactive mapping tool that illustrates current and projected coastal flooding risks to resources in the Northeast Florida region. The types of flooding mapped are FEMA flood hazard zones, storm surge, depth of flood at defined storm occurrence intervals, and sea level rise at defined water levels. Users can select data layers for resources to overlay on flooding layers including critical facilities, priority wildlife species, and vulnerable populations.

Sea-level Rise: Projections for Maryland 2018

2018

Maryland’s shoreline and coastal bays are highly vulnerable to sea-level rise (SLR), causing shoreline erosion, deterioration of tidal wetlands, saline contamination of low-lying farm fields, "nuisance” tidal flooding, and more.  Fulfilling requirements of Maryland’s Commission on Climate Change Act of 2015, this report provides updated projections of sea-level rise expected into the next century along Maryland’s coast. The probabilistic SLR projections presented in the report offer a scientifically sound and readily applicable basis for planning and regulation, assessments of changes in tidal range and storm surge, development of inundation mapping tools, infrastructure siting and design, and identification of adaptation strategies for high-tide flooding and saltwater intrusion.

Tribal Vulnerability Assessment Resource Toolkit

November 2018

The University of Washington Climate Impacts Group and regional tribal partners developed this suite of resources to support tribes in evaluating their vulnerability to the impacts of climate change. The tools are tailored geographically to each of the 84 tribes in the Pacific Northwest and Great Basin regions of the western U. S. , with the potential to expand to other regions in the country. The new climate resources are available online, and include a climate tool, links to resources and a technical support line for tribal staff and members.
