Abstract

Climate-changeAdaptation is iterative – and involves ongoing evaluation of risk, identification of current and anticipated impacts and vulnerabilities, and responses to changes in fundamental scientific understanding and associated uncertainties.  The Third US National Climate Assessment was explicitly designed to support adaptation decisions and included an array of different strategies to encourage participation and engagement.  Further, a sustained process for assessing climate related risks through iterative processes was initiated by the NCA3 participants.  This talk includes a summary of the NCA findings and a discussion of approaches to adaptation in the water sector.
