New York State Department of Health Building Resilience Against Climate Effects (BRACE) in New York State

June 2015

In June 2015, The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) undertook a climate and health adaptation planning process known as BRACE (Building Resilience Against Climate Effects), a result of a grant from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2010. The creation of this report fulfills the first of five steps of the CDC’s BRACE framework - to forecast climate impacts and assess vulnerabilities. The report reviews an assessment of the projected climate-related public health impacts in New York, and provides public health resilience strategies and recommendations for NYSDOH.

Populations Vulnerable to Climate Change in New Jersey: Update of a Statistical Analysis

June 2015

In order to characterize and locate frontline communities in New Jersey, this study examines the demographic and geographic attributes of socially-vulnerable groups and their exposure to flooding (the cause of nearly all past presidential declarations in the state). The research revealed that a disproportionate number of highly socially-vulnerable census tracts are located in flood hazard areas.

MassDOT-FHWA Pilot Project Report: Climate Change and Extreme Weather Vulnerability Assessments and Adaptation Options for the Central Artery

June 2015

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) commissioned a pilot project to assess climate change vulnerability of the Central Artery and Tunnel System (CA/T) for the City of Boston, Massachusetts in 2013 - 2015. Through sea level rise and storm surge modeling for Boston, the study found that this critical transportation system is highly vulnerable to flooding. The pilot team developed adaptation strategies for current and future implementation, and initiated an emergency response plan for tunnel protection.
