Climate and Health - Understanding the Risk: An Assessment of San Francisco’s Vulnerability to Extreme Heat Events

2013

The San Francisco Department of Public Health was awarded funding by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to conduct an environmental health assessment of vulnerability to heat waves and air quality. This report provides an overview of the health department’s study of heat distribution, and predictions of neighborhoods that are especially vulnerable to extreme heat in San Francisco, California. The assessment will inform climate change adaptation planning efforts including a heat wave disaster response plan.

California Third Climate Change Assessment: 2012 Vulnerability and Adaptation Study

July 31, 2012

The '2012 Vulnerability and Adaptation Study' is California's third major assessment on climate change. California produces periodic scientific assessments on the potential impacts of climate change on the state, and reports potential adaptation responses. Required by Executive Order #S-03-05, these assessments influence legislation and inform policy makers. The Third California Climate Change Assessment is a compilation of 37 reports which outline local and statewide vulnerabilities to climate change, for the energy, water, agriculture, public health, coastal, transportation, and ecological resource sectors.

Climate Vulnerability Monitor

2012

The Climate Vulnerability Monitor (2nd Ed. ) measures the global impact of climate change and the carbon economy at a national level. It calculates and compares the vulnerability for 184 countries in four areas of impact (environmental disasters, habitat change, health impact and industry stress) using 34 climate and carbon related indicators. The report is the second to be issued by an ongoing international research program on climate-related vulnerability mandated to the independent humanitarian and development research organization, DARA.

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."

Changing Climate, Changing Wildlife: A Vulnerability Assessment of 400 Species of Greatest Conservation Need and Game Species in Michigan

April 2013

The Wildlife Division of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources assessed the climate change vulnerability of 400 animal species in Michigan. Using the Nature Serve Climate Change Vulnerability Index (CCVI) tool, all resident terrestrial game species and all Species of Greatest Conservation Need (SGCN) with enough life history data were assessed. The species considered “vulnerable” to climate change are those expected to experience reductions in range extent or abundance by 2050. The CCVI analysis indicates that 17% of terrestrial game species and 61% of terrestrial and aquatic SGCN are vulnerable in Michigan.

Washington Connected Landscapes Project: Climate-Gradient Corridors Report

August 2011

Prepared by the Washington Wildlife Habitat Connectivity Working Group, this report builds off of a previous (2010) assessment of habitat connectivity patterns for wildlife in Washington. This study factors climate change into the assessment and identifies “climate-gradient corridors” that can support habitat conservation and wildlife migration and response to future changes in climate.
