Lenders’ Guide for Considering Climate Risk in Infrastructure Investments

January 17, 2018

Four Twenty Seven, in collaboration with Acclimatise and Climate Finance Advisers, published this guide to discuss the acute and chronic impacts of climate change on infrastructure, and the associated risks and liability for infrastructure investors.

BCDC Adapting to Rising Tides Program

2010

The San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC) Adapting to Rising Tides (ART) program is focused on helping shoreline communities in the San Francisco Bay area, spanning 10 California counties, to plan for sea-level rise and other climate impacts. Since 2010, the ART Program leads and supports multi-sector, cross-jurisdictional projects that build local and regional capacity in the SF Bay Area to plan for and implement adaptation responses. ART evaluates potential shoreline impacts, vulnerabilities, and risks; identifies effective adaptation strategies that will lead to stronger, more resilient shoreline communities; and develops adaptation planning tools and resources that are useful to communities throughout the Bay Area.
