Climate Warming and Water Management Adaptation for California

Paper focuses on the likely effects of a range of climate warming estimates on the long-term performance and management of California’s water system.

Economics of Adaptation to Climate Change: Samoa

Study examines the consequences of an increase in average temperatures of up to 1°C by 2050 and up to 2.75°C by 2100 for the frequency and intensity of major cyclones that hit the islands.

The Costs of Adaptation: Case Study on Heat Related Health Risks and Adaptation in London

Case study aims to assess the potential costs and effectiveness of adaptation actions that address heat-related health risks in London, and identify and discuss the potential for cross-sectoral options that span the built environment.

Strategies to Adapt to an Uncertain Climate Change

Paper calls for the development of innovative adaptation strategies able to cope with the uncertainty on future climates, and for more involvement of climate information end-users.

Preparing for an Uncertain Future Climate in the Inland Empire

Document describes the analysis developed for the fourth workshop which was developed to help water managers, technical staff, elected officials, and other planners from the IEUA region consider the significance of potential climate change relative to other key planning uncertainties and evaluate options for reducing their vulnerability to supply shortfalls under a wide range of plausible future conditions.

Climate change uncertainty: building flexibility into water and flood risk infrastructure

Study applies RIO (real in option) analysis to the selection and timing of options for the modification of an urban drainage system as an example of how best to adapt these systems to provide greater climate change resilience.

Urban Regions: Vulnerabilities, Vulnerability Assessments by Indicators and Adaptation Options for Climate Change Impacts

Study assesses the feasibility of developing climate change related vulnerability indicators for urban areas to support future EU spatial development policy by reviewing available literature and research activities.
