Central New Mexico Climate Change Scenario Planning Project and Long Range Metropolitan Transportation Plan

2015

The Mid-Region Council of Governments of New Mexico (MRCOG) is integrating climate change analysis into long-range transportation and land use planning through the Central New Mexico Climate Change Scenario Planning Project. MRCOG partnered with federal land management agencies, the U. S. Department of Transportation Volpe Center, and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to plan for a regional reduction in future greenhouse gas emissions, and to prepare for the potential impacts of climate change.

Mainstreaming Sea Level Rise Preparedness in Local Planning and Policy on Maryland's Eastern Shore

January 2019

The Eastern Shore Land Conservancy partnered with the Georgetown Climate Center (GCC), the Eastern Shore Regional GIS Cooperative, and the University of Maryland Environmental Finance Center for this analysis on sea level rise preparedness in Maryland’s Eastern Shore region. GCC offers a discussion of strategies related to floodplain, zoning and regulatory standards to support sea level rise and coastal flooding resilience policies and decision making.

The Benefits and Challenges of Green Roofs on Public and Commercial Buildings

May 2011

From the United States General Services Administration, this report presents the costs, benefits, challenges, and opportunities of green roofs with a focus on the National Capital Region (Washington, D.C. and the surrounding area). The study finds that over a 50 year period the stormwater, energy, carbon dioxide equivalent, and community benefits of green roofs outweigh the costs associated with installation and maintenance.

NOAA Sea Level Rise Viewer

Hosted by the NOAA Coastal Services Center's Digital Coast, this online mapping tool allows users to observe the effects of sea level rise on U.S. coasts. Being able to visualize potential impacts from sea level rise can be a powerful teaching and planning tool, and the Sea Level Rise Viewer brings this capability to coastal communities.

U.S. DOI Pacific Island Climate Science Center: Research Funding - Hawaii, Marshall Islands

December 18, 2014

The U. S. Department of the Interior (DOI) is funding research through the Pacific Islands Climate Science Center (CSC) on the Republic of Marshall Islands (RMI) human migration dynamics in 2016. This project will examine the extent to which direct and indirect links between patterns of human migration and climate events can be identified. The researchers will examine migration trends and motivations, characterize changes that have taken place to local lands and ecosystems in the RMI, and use projections of climate change to understand which islands and communities may be at highest risk in the future.

California Water Action Plan - 2016 Update

January 14, 2016

In response to an extended and extreme period of drought across the state, the California Water Action Plan was first released by the administration of Governor Brown in January 2014 to provide a framework for implementing sustainable water management practices over five years (2014‐2019). The actions described in the plan will support sustainable water management in California by providing a more reliable water supply for farms and communities, restoring important wildlife habitat and species, and helping the state’s water systems and environment become more resilient to climate change.
