Alaska's IAWG 2009 Final Report: Recommendations to the Governor's Sub-Cabinet on Climate Change

March 2009

Alaska's Immediate Action Workgroup (IAWG) of the Governor’s Executive Subcabinet on Climate Change was formed in 2007 to make and prioritize annual recommendations to address impacts to the state's communities from climate change. The Workgroup released its first report in 2008, addressing known climate threats to communities caused by coastal erosion, thawing permafrost, flooding, and fires. The climate impacts are assessed and recommendations are made for each of the Alaskan communities of Kivalina, Koyukuk, Newtok, Shaktoolik, Shismaref, and Unalakleet.

Confronting Climate Change: An Early Analysis of Water and Wastewater Adaptation Costs

October 2009

This analysis is an economic assessment with three objectives: 1) To characterize the impacts of climate change on drinking water and wastewater services in the United States through 2050, based on greenhouse gas scenarios and regional projections of climate change effects; 2) To help policy makers and the water and wastewater sector begin to understand the challenges of ensuring that reliable water and wastewater services continue to be available in the face of a changing climate; and 3) To provide early cost estimates so that policies can be developed that address these challenges and planning by utilities can begin.

Climate Action Plans and Long-Range Transportation Plans in the Pacific Northwest: a review of the state of practice

2010

Using online research and a survey, the authors of this report evaluated if and how agencies in the Pacific Northwest are preparing for climate change in their climate action plans (CAPs). Additionally, the report indicates if the goals and recommendations of CAPs are reflected in long-range transportation planning (LRTP) documents; providing examples of how CAPs can better support transportation planners. This report includes a discussion of projected climate change impacts on surface transportation infrastructure and operations by state.
