Abstract:

The Department of Defense DoD has identified climate change as a risk to its infrastructure and is seeking to develop efficient and effective processes to assess the vulnerability of its assets to this risk. Responding to this need, we developed, piloted, and evaluated an approach for vulnerability assessment keyed to DoD decision-making needs and processes at multiple organizations levels. We developed and tested methods for use in an overall assessment framework, and a process for assessments at installations that applies extensive stakeholder involvement, a novel approach to providing climate information likely future exposure, a range of existing models and approaches for estimating impacts, and decision making frameworks.
