The final draft of the Washington Climate Change Impacts Assessment is now publicly available through the Climate Impacts Group at the University of Washington. The report discusses new work characterising the implications of climate change on several of the state's sectors including,
- human health,
- urban stormwater infrastructure,
- salmon, and
- hydrology and water resources.
In addition, the report closes with a discussion of the role of adaptation in addressing some of these potential impacts, which includes the identification of adaptation policies and measures as well as policy instruments to facilitate their implementation and enhance adaptive capacity.
