From the Innovation Network for Communities, this report discusses eight strategies city governments have used to finance climate resilience projects. These strategies were found common to eight different U.S. cities blazing the trail to fund large-scale climate resilience, especially addressing sea level rise and flooding. Other cities can use this information to adopt and build off of these strategies as they seek to fund their own adaptation projects.

The Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP) is part of NOAA's Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) program, which supports climate research for decision-makers and policy planners at a regional level. Based in the University of Alaska - Fairbanks, ACCAP aims to assess the socio-economic and biophysical impacts of climate variability in Alaska, and make this information available to state and local decision-makers to improve the ability of Alaskan's to adapt to a changing climate.
Responding to Climate Change in New York State: ClimAID Integrated Assessment for Effective Climate Change Adaptation - Synthesis Report
Prepared for the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), this state-level assessment provides information on New York's vulnerability to climate change and is specifically designed to assist in the development of adaptation strategies. The Integrated Assessment for Effective Climate Change Adaptation Strategies in New York State (also known as "ClimAID") provides information on climate change impacts and adaptation options for eight sectors in New York including water resources, coastal zones, ecosystems, agriculture, energy, transportation, public health and telecommunications.
