Climate Change Adaptation. Climate change now affects everything in the Lake Tahoe Basin. Climate scientists project increasingly common weather extremes that will transform Tahoe, with impacts on lake clarity, natural resources, communities, and the economy. Sea level rise, erosion, increased temperatures, and changes in precipitation are among the many climate change impacts expected to affect California’s natural and built environment. In , the California Climate Adaptation Strategy was released. Background.
of these extreme events can be directly attributed to human-induced climate change, their devastating consequences highlight California’s vulnerabilities to climate variability and change. Among other impacts, extreme events are projected to become more frequent and intense as the climate continues to change (Meehl et al., ). • Cost of unmitigated climate change to 5% of global economic product in For California: $ to $ billion in • Effective adaptation can limit the cost of climate change impacts Economic Impacts of Climate Change.
The goals of the CalBRACE project are to enhance the California Department of Public Health's (CDPH) capability to plan for and reduce health risks associated with climate change. The program provides resources and technical assistance for the state and local public health departments to build climate adaptation capacity and enhance resilience. Climate Action Plans; (4) a survey of farmers’ views on climate change, its impacts and what adaptation and mitigation strategies they might be inclined to adopt; and (5) an urban growth model that evaluates various future development scenarios and the impact on Yolo County.

This paper presents a short review of the existing literature on climate change impacts and adaptation options for California.
At the global scale, there is a scientific consensus that climate is changing and that the increased concentration of greenhouses gases in the atmosphere are responsible for these changes. California.
Climate Change Adaptation Climate Change Impacts Utility Services. Climate change is impacting California, and many of the industries the CPUC regulates are affected. Robust climate adaptation planning in a time of worsening climate impacts is a prudent next step to ensure the safety and reliability of all investor-owned public utilities.
California Climate Change Adaptation Strategy (CAS, ): The CAS is a statewide strategy that includes a summary of impacts from climate change and provides recommendations for adaptation strategies in seven sectors, including public health, water, agriculture, transportation.
threats that are now being magnified by climate change. This paper synthesizes Bay Area-focused findings from research conducted in – as part of the state’s Vulnerability and Adaptation (study sponsored by the California Energy Commission’s Public Interest Energy Research (PIER) Program.
For the first time, the. Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation in California. Climate change is a critical issue facing California — as it reshapes ecosystems, impacts public health, agriculture and water resources, and affects coastal and marine areas, all with effects on the larger economy.
The impacts of global climate change are already being felt in the United States and are projected to intensify in the future—but the severity of future impacts will depend largely on actions taken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to adapt to the changes that will occur/5(9).
Climate change is a global phenomenon with local impacts. As a result, planning for and adapting to climate change requires public and private sector involvement and leadership at local, regional, and state levels.
To address climate change impacts, it is critical to invest in adaptation and resilienceFile Size: 1MB. While the indicators report documents and measures impacts that have already occurred, another series of reports, California’s Climate Change Assessments, builds on these observations to make projections about future impacts that can inform state adaptation strategies.
California is one of the few states to compile its own series of. Available Here - California’s Fourth Climate Change Assessment (Fourth Assessment) includes a suite of technical and regional reports prepared to help inform local and state decision makers about climate change impacts and resilience actions.

This book serves as a guide for local governments and private enterprises Jesse M. Keenan Climate Adaptation Finance and Investment in California as they navigate the unchartered waters of investing in climate change adaptation and resilience.
This book serves not File Size: 2MB. to identify and prepare for these expected climate impacts. The California Climate Adaptation Strategy (CAS) report summarizes the best known science on climate change impacts in the state to assess vulnerability and outlines possible solutions that can be implemented within and across state agencies to promote resiliency.

California’s first step toward preparing for the impacts of climate change—its adaptation policy—was the result of a Executive Order that required state agencies to develop a strategy to identify and prepare for climate impacts Since then, California has continued to update its Climate Adaptation Strategy Although these policies are not as well developed as California policies that target mitigation, the Cited by: 2.
The impacts and adaptations have been studied using several methodologies, such as process-based models, agro-ecosystem models, and statistical models based on historical data. This Special Issue welcomes articles, from any agricultural area of the world, and for any cropping system, dealing with impacts and adaptations of climate change.
The scarce interest on the environmental impacts of adaptation may be attributed to (1) an excessive sectoral approach, with dominance of non-environmental perspectives, (2) greater interest in mitigation and direct climate change impacts rather than in adaptation impacts, (3) a tendency to consider adaptation as inherently good, and (4 Cited by: Climate Change and Agriculture: An Economic Analysis of Global Impacts, Adaptation and Distributional Effects Authors.
