TRB Research In Progress (RiP) Database

The Transportation Research Board's (TRB) Research In Progress (RiP) Database and data-entry system allows users in the U. S. Department of Transportation (DOT), state DOTs, University Transportation Centers (UTCs) and other USDOT-funded universities to add, modify, and delete information on their current research projects. To see a list of climate change (both mitigation and adaptation) related research, enter "climate change" in the Keyword field. Project descriptions provide contact information for research team members.

Tribal Climate Change Project

The Tribal Climate Change Project (TCCP) is a collaborative project between the University of Oregon Environmental Studies Program and the USDA Forest Service Pacific Northwest Research Station. TCCP aims to understand the needs, lessons learned, and opportunities American Indians and Alaska Natives have in planning for the physical effects of climate change. This information will be used to inform resource management decision-making in the context of climate change. This project supports the USDA Forest Service 2010 Coordinated Approach to Tribal Climate Change Research strategy.

Nature Conservancy Coastal Resilience Program

A program from The Nature Conservancy (TNC), Coastal Resilience is dedicated to providing information to communities, planners, businesses and policy makers to help them integrate sea-level rise and coastal hazards into their decision-making, and mitigate both community and natural resources vulnerabilities. The program consists of an approach, a web mapping tool, and a network of practitioners around the world supporting hazard mitigation and climate adaptation planning.

Energy and Environment Legislation Tracking Device

The National Conference of State Legislatures tracks state energy and environment legislation that has been introduced in the fifty states and the District of Columbia. Both climate change mitigation and adaptation searches are supported. The tracker contains bills that have been enacted, as well as those that are pending or have failed. NCSL indicates their database is updated and summarized bi-weekly. .
