Colorado Climate Preparedness Project Adaptation Database

The Colorado Climate Preparedness Project (CCPP) was initiated to to assist Colorado in continuing to prepare itself for climate variability and change by providing a catalog of climate vulnerabilities and current adaptation activities in the state. The project focuses on five key sectors that were identified by the state advisory team as particularly sensitive to the impacts of climate variability and change including: Water; Wildlife, ecosystems and forests; Electricity; Agriculture; and Climate-sensitive tourism and outdoor recreation.

Literature Synthesis on Climate Change Implications for Water and Environmental Resources

September 2013

This report synthesizes regional studies on the implications of climate change on Bureau of Reclamation operations and activities in 17 Western States. Specifically, the report addresses past and projected effects of climate change on hydrology and water resources. The report outlines implications for the key resource areas the Bureau considers in its planning processes for each of the Bureau's five regions: Pacific Northwest, Mid-Pacific, Lower Colorado, Upper Colorado, and Great Plains.

Arlington, Virginia Watershed Retrofit Study

December 2013

Completed in December, 2013, Arlington County, VA produced a Watershed Retrofit Study and plans with the purpose of strengthening the resiliency of its stormwater management systems to climate change. Arlington developed a County-wide project inventory by surveying all of the County's watersheds to find space for small stormwater facilities. This study informed the City of Arlington’s Stormwater Master Plan, which was adopted in Sept. 2014.

Assessing the Vulnerability of Watersheds to Climate Change

July 2013

The US Forest Service (USFS) Watershed Vulnerability Assessment (WVA) project developed an approach to assessing the vulnerability of water resources in a watershed to projected climate-hydrologic changes. The WVA project was conducted by watershed and aquatic specialists from 11 National Forests across the country representing all nine Forest Service regions. Based on the lessons learned from the pilot projects, this summary report provides guidance on the process of conducting such an assessment, with supporting information for all the key stages of the process.

Bureau of Reclamation - Colorado River Basin Water Supply and Demand Study

December 2012

The U. S. Bureau of Reclamation's Colorado River Basin Water Supply and Demand Study (2010 - 2012) was focused on defining current and future imbalances between water supply and demand in the Colorado River Basin and surrounding areas, with plans to develop and analyze adaptation and mitigation strategies in an effort to resolve these imbalances.  The Study recognizes that climate change and future climate variability will introduce uncertainty into water supply analysis. Its researchers developed their scenarios to account for this uncertainty.

Ready or Not: An Evaluation of State Climate and Water Preparedness Planning

April 2012

The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) has evaluated how each state in the U.S. is preparing for water related climate impacts, and shares the results in this comprehensive report.  The findings differentiate the best prepared and most engaged states on climate change preparedness issues from those that are largely unprepared and "lagging behind."
