Climate Hubs Tool Shed

July 2015

The Climate Hubs Tool Shed provides information on tools to support agricultural and forest land managers in adapting to climate change. The database includes tools that are directly relevant to climate variability and change, as well as tools that can assist in managing climate related impacts, such as drought, pests, and extreme weather. The Tool Shed is managed by the U. S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) - who describes the target audience as Climate Hub extension and consultants, as well as land managers, land owners, and researchers.

Climate Resilience Evaluation and Awareness Tool (CREAT) Projected Scenarios

This website describes the scenarios used for the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Climate Resilience Evaluation and Awareness Tool (CREAT), a tool to help water and wastewater utilities prepare for climate change. The tool includes a map that shows projected climate change across the U. S. The map is separated into grids (roughly 32 x 32 miles). Each grid displays projections for annual total precipitation, annual average temperature, and precipitation intensity for the 100-year storm.

Cities Impacts and Adaptation Tool

From the University of Michigan Graham Sustainability Institute, the Cities Impacts and Adaptation Tool (CIAT) was a result of the Great Lakes Adaptation Assessment for Cities (G-LACC) project. This online climate adaptation planning support tool was designed to support decision makers at the municipal level in the Great Lakes Region. The goal was to create a tool that can be used by stakeholders to synthesize, communicate, and apply climate-relevant knowledge for urban resilience under different climate scenarios.
