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.

Boston Greenovate Plan

January 15, 2015

The 2014 Boston Greenovate Climate Action Plan describes Boston’s progress towards reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 25% by 2020 and 80% by 2050, and preparing for the impacts of climate change. There is a marked focus on adaptive strategies and solutions and less emphasis on climate impacts, across five sections of the Plan: Neighborhoods, Large Buildings and Institutions, Transportation, Climate Preparedness, and 80x50 (Boston’s 80 percent by 2050 GHG reduction goal).

SAFR Connecticut Connections: Building-up a resilient development and transportation network to support vulnerable communities

May 1, 2015

The State Agencies For Resilience (SAFR) Connecticut Connections report is a proposal for the National Disaster Resilience Competition (NDRC) implemented by the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The NDRC is making nearly $1 billion in funds available to communities impacted by natural disasters from 2011-2013.  HUD preselected the State of Connecticut as an eligible applicant for this grant. Within the State of Connecticut, Fairfield and New Haven counties were determined by HUD to be the most impacted and distressed areas.

Marin County Climate Action Plan (2015 Update)

July 2015

The 2015 Marin County, California Climate Action Plan (CAP) updates the 2006 Marin County Greenhouse Gas Reduction Plan. The majority of the plan focuses on mitigation, providing an update of GHG emissions in 2012, forecasts of emissions for 2020, and an assessment of actions that the County will take to further reduce emissions by 2020. In addition, Chapter 8 focuses on adaptation, providing an overview of Marin’s expected climate risks, a summary of actions-to-date, and recommended next steps.

South Florida Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment and Adaptation Pilot Project: Final Report

April 10, 2015

From 2013 to 2015, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) sponsored climate resilience pilot studies by partnering with State Departments of Transportation and Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs). The FHWA’s Climate Change Resilience Pilots were designed to conduct climate change and extreme weather vulnerability assessments of transportation infrastructure and to analyze options for adapting and improving resiliency. This report presents the results of the FHWA pilot study in the southeast Florida region of Broward, Miami-Dade, Monroe and Palm Beach Counties.

Colorado Climate Vulnerability Study

January 2015

The Western Water Assessment (WWA), in collaboration with Colorado State University, conducted this climate vulnerability study for the state of Colorado. Drawing from existing data and peer-reviewed research, the assessment summarizes the key impacts in seven sectors: ecosystems, water, agriculture, energy, transportation, outdoor recreation and tourism, and public health. It also details current adaptive capacity and potential strategies in those sectors to meet future climate challenges - providing a background for preparedness planning.
