Integrated Assessment for Effective Climate Change Strategies in New York State

The “Integrated Assessment for Effective Climate Change Adaptation Strategies in New York State" project was undertaken by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) ClimAID science team.   The vulnerability assessment considers the effects of climate change on New York, including rising sea levels, increasing temperatures, and changing weather patterns. The project draws upon both local experience and scientific knowledge by involving numerous stakeholders in eight key sectors: agriculture, communications, ecosystems, energy, ocean coastal zones, public health, transportation, and water resources.

From Tides to Storms: Preparing for New Hampshire's Future Coast - Assessing Risk and Vulnerability of Coastal Communities to Sea-Level Rise and Storm Surge

September 2015

Developed by the Rockingham Planning Commission, the Tides to Storms project worked with 7 coastal communities in New Hampshire (Seabrook, Hampton Falls, Hampton, North Hampton, Rye, New Castle, Portsmouth) to assess their vulnerability to flooding from storm surge and sea-level rise. A regional vulnerability assessment was developed, as well as an assessment report and map set were prepared for each of the seven coastal municipalities. Each assessment considers risks to roadways and supporting transportation infrastructure, critical facilities and infrastructure, and natural resources.
