City of Benicia, California Climate Change Vulnerability and Risk Summary Report

2015

The City of Benicia is a coastal community in the San Francisco Bay area of California. In April 2014, Benicia was awarded a California Coastal Conservancy Climate Ready Grant for $150,000 to conduct a climate change vulnerability assessment and to develop a climate adaptation plan. The Vulnerability and Risk Report was developed in partnership with ICF International and Placeworks, who examined climate change related vulnerabilities and risks in Benicia (primarily sea level rise, flooding and temperature changes).

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.

Louisiana’s Coastal Master Plan – Projects to Protect Transportation Infrastructure

March 2012

In 2012, Louisiana’s Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) developed a Coastal Master Plan to provide a system-wide plan for reducing hurricane flood risk and restoring land along the Louisiana coast. The Plan defines a set of coastal protection and restoration projects to be implemented by the state over the next 50 years.   Six of these projects create wetlands in order to protect sections of Louisiana’s highways. The criteria used for selecting projects consider future climate impacts.

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.

Southeast Florida Regional Climate Action Plan

October 2012

The Southeast Florida Regional Climate Change Compact was executed by Broward, Miami-Dade, Palm Beach, and Monroe Counties in January 2010 to coordinate mitigation and adaptation activities across county lines in the region. The Compact is a focused collaborative, providing the vision and framework for regional resilience. The Compact calls for the Counties to work cooperatively in order to develop a coordinated response to proposed state climate legislation and policies; to create a Southeast Florida Regional Climate Change Action Plan to include mitigation and adaptation strategies; and to meet annually in Regional Climate Summits to mark progress and identify emerging issues.
