December 2013

The long-range regional transportation plan for the Chattanooga-Hamilton County/North Georgia Transportation Planning Organization (CHCNGA TPO), entitled “2040 Regional Transportation Plan” (2040 RTP), includes a report on Climate Change and Transportation Resiliency for the region. The Plan identifies critical transportation assets in the CHCNGA TPO region, assesses the potential vulnerability and risk for each asset across a range of potential impacts, and outlines planning, design and operations adaptation actions that could be deployed to mitigate potential vulnerabilities.

Savannah, Georgia Region's Total Mobility Plan: 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan

August 2014

The Coastal Region Metropolitan Planning Organization (CORE MPO) adopted the Total Mobility Plan: 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (“plan”) to help guide officials responsible for planning and preparing Chatham County-Savannah infrastructure for changes the region will see in the upcoming decades, including the impacts of climate change and sea-level rise. Required by federal law to be updated every five years, the plan updates the region’s 2035 Long Range Transportation Plan and puts a greater emphasis on sustainability, complete streets, context-sensitive design and non-motorized transportation options.

Encroaching Tides: How Sea Level Rise and Tidal Flooding Threaten U.S. East and Gulf Coast Communities over the Next 30 Years

October 2014

This report from the Union of Concerned Scientists describes the threat of tidal flooding in the East Coast and Gulf regions and offers steps that communities can take to adapt. The report makes the case that tidal flooding, currently just considered a nuisance, could become a daily or weekly occurrence, redefining how and where people along the coast “live, work, play, and move through their daily lives. " Data was collected in 52 locations to provide projections for sea level rise and tidal flooding in the region until 2045.

Case Study of the Atlanta BeltLine - Adaptation Aspects

2016

The Atlanta BeltLine project demonstrates how cities can reuse underutilized sites and facilities to enhance city resilience to future climate impacts. (However, the BeltLine project is not being designed explicitly as a climate change adaptation project.) With the BeltLine project, the city is converting 22 miles of disused railway beds surrounding the city into a biking and pedestrian loop and a streetcar line, which will include 1,300 acres of new and 700 acres of restored greenspace.

City of Tybee Island, Georgia, Sea-Level Rise Adaptation Plan

April 17, 2016

Tybee Island is a barrier island located 18 miles away from Savannah, Georgia - accessible only by a single causeway. The Tybee Island Sea-Level Rise Adaptation Plan identifies how more frequent coastal flooding and sea-level rise could impact low-lying infrastructure on the island; and provides a synthesis of the public engagement processes, technical research, and sea-level rise adaptation strategies.  The City of Tybee Island partnered with Georgia Sea Grant, the University of Georgia, and Stetson University to develop this sea-level rise adaptation plan.

U.S. Military on the Front Lines of Rising Seas

July 27, 2016

The Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) has analyzed the exposure and vulnerability of coast military installations to tidal flooding and sea level rise through the end of the century. 18 East and Gulf Coast sites in Florida, Georgia, Maine, Maryland, North Carolina, New Jersey, South Carolina, Virginia and Washington D. C. were selected to be representative of coastal installations nationwide in terms of size, geographic distribution and military branch. US Military on the Front Lines of Rising Seas includes an executive summary, a two-page fact sheet, and individual fact sheets for each of the 18 bases.
