Mission Creek Sea Level Rise Adaptation Study - San Francisco, California

September 2016

This report presents a high-level vulnerability assessment along with seven adaptation design concepts for Mission Creek and the Mission Bay neighborhood adjacent to the San Francisco Bay in San Francisco, California. This adaptation study seeks to inform sea level rise resilient redevelopment in Mission Bay - one of the largest redevelopment projects in the city of San Francisco. Though focused around Mission Creek, the process and design ideas detailed in this report can be replicated in other parts of the Bay Area.

Climate Change Through an Intersectional Lens: Gendered Vulnerability and Resilience in Indigenous Communities in the United States

December 2015

This report examines the role of gender in indigenous communities and discusses how gender influences climate change vulnerability and resilience of Native American, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian communities. The intersection of gender with other forms of oppression in the face of climate change can result in unique vulnerabilities, requiring nuanced adaptation strategies for indigenous communities.  This report provides a resource for native americans as well as nonindigenous collaborators to inform the development of climate adaptation strategies, that also help alleviate intersectional oppression and promote gender justice.

San Bruno Creek and Colma Creek Resiliency Study - San Francisco International Airport

August 2015

This resiliency study describes the vulnerability assessment and sea level rise adaptation strategies for two creek systems - San Bruno and Colma - that flow into San Francisco Bay adjacent to the San Francisco International Airport (SFO), San Mateo County, California. SFO - a critical component of the Bay Area economy - and residential neighborhoods within the lower reaches of the San Bruno Creek and Colma Creek watersheds (Project Area) are at risk of severe flooding from these two creeks due to sea level rise.

Sea Level Rise Adaptation Strategy for San Diego Bay, California

January 2012

The San Diego Bay Sea Level Rise Strategy provides a regional approach to sea level rise adaptation, and is a foundation to guide coordinated adaptation planning among participating local jurisdictions. The strategy was prepared by ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability, and resulted from the efforts of a collaborative, regional stakeholder process undertaken as part of the San Diego Regional Climate Protection Initiative, a partnership with the San Diego Foundation and all local governments in the San Diego region.
