Sonoma County, California Climate Readiness Plan - Climate Action 2020 and Beyond

July 11, 2016

Sonoma County, California developed their Climate Action 2020 and Beyond plan primarily to address greenhouse gas mitigation opportunities for the county, but also to initiate adaptation planning. A chapter of the report focused on climate change adaptation is offered as the Climate Readiness Plan. This plan provides a vulnerability assessment that evaluates climate impacts on three key community resource areas - people and social systems, built systems, and natural and working lands. This chapter also discusses adaptation solutions already underway in Sonoma, and provides general adaptation goals and strategies as a starting point for the County to respond to the impacts identified through the vulnerability assessment.

Sacramento Region Transportation Adaptation Plan and Regional Transportation Plan

August 2015

The Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) developed a high-level vulnerability assessment and adaptation plan (“Adaptation Plan”) for the region’s transportation infrastructure, and is using the plan as a framework to guide future adaptation work and inform planning for transportation investments. The initial findings from the Adaptation Plan are being incorporated into the region’s 2016 long-range transportation plan update. The Adaptation Plan looks at risks to transportation from four primary climate-related threats to the region: extreme temperature; wildfire; precipitation, runoff, and flooding; and landslides.

State of Maryland 2016 Hazard Mitigation Plan

August 2016

In 2016, the State of Maryland updated its Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) and included consideration of how climate change will affect the natural hazards that threaten the state's critical facilities, assets, and citizens. The plan analyzes risks of natural hazards in each region of the state, and provides data to guide hazard mitigation decisions and prioritize at-risk areas. The plan was developed by the Maryland Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) in coordination with other planning and adaptation initiatives at the local, state, and federal levels.

California State Route 37 Stewardship Study

February 2016

The University of California Davis Road Ecology Center undertook a stewardship study to assess the risk to California State Route 37 (SR 37) from sea-level rise.  SR 37 passes near San Francisco Bay, connecting Interstate 80 and Highway 101.  The road corridor and surrounding wetlands are threatened by sea-level rise and flooding. The road bed sits below sea level at its lowest elevation and is likely to experience erosion, flooding during storms, and inundation due to sea-level rise. The State Road 37 Stewardship Study (Study) included a stakeholder process and technical analyses to determine possible future solutions to reduce the vulnerability of the highway to climate impacts.

Cambridge, Massachusetts Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment - Part I

November 2015

The City of Cambridge, Massachusetts completed a Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment (CCVA) which primarily focuses on the City’s vulnerabilities to increasing temperature and precipitation, while addressing risks from sea level rise and storm surge flooding through 2030. The CCVA report consists of a 36 page summary report and three supplemental technical reports. Cambridge also completed Part 2 of the CCVA which discusses sea level rise and coastal storm surge impacts projected for the area.

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.
