Colorado Drought Mitigation and Response Plan - 2013

September 2013

Statewide drought planning for Colorado has been developed through the preparation and implementation of the Colorado Drought Mitigation and Response Plan (DMRP). This plan was prepared by the Colorado Water Conservation Board, a division of the Colorado Department of Natural Resources. In 2010, the DMRP went through a comprehensive revision. The 2013 updated plan outlines a mechanism for coordinated drought monitoring, impact assessment, response to emergency drought problems, and mitigation of long term drought impacts.

Southeast Florida Regional Compact: Climate Action Plan - 2014 Municipal Implementation Survey

December 2014

The Institute for Sustainable Communities (ISC), on behalf of the Southeast Florida Regional Climate Change Compact, has administered the Regional Climate Action Plan (RCAP) 2014 Municipal Implementation Survey, compiling climate-related ordinances, resolutions, regulations and administrative policy information from the 108 municipalities in Broward, Miami-Dade, Monroe, and Palm Beach Counties, Florida. The data collected from this survey will allow the Compact and ISC to create a database on the Compact’s official website highlighting municipal work in mitigating and adapting to climate change impacts, and will allow for peer-to-peer knowledge and resource sharing.

Critical Issues in Aviation and the Environment

April 2014

The Transportation Research Board (TRB) reviews the critical concerns and research priorities for environmental issues impacted by and affecting aviation activities in this report, including the issue of climate change.  TRB evaluated the aviation impacts on noise, air quality, climate change, and water quality; sustainable solutions to minimize impacts; and processes and tools for solution implementation. Adaptation planning and preparedness is addressed with the general recommendation that downscaled, region-specific climate projections should be incorporated into airport planning processes and operations.

Wetlands Restoration for California Greenhouse Gas Reduction Grant Program

Administered by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, this grant program offers funds for wetland restoration or enhancement projects that result in a net reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Wetland restoration is both a climate change mitigation and adaptation strategy. Wetlands sequester carbon at high rates, while providing protection from flooding, sea level rise, coastal storm surge, and coastal erosion, as well as offer drought mitigation through groundwater recharge.
