New State-based Adaptation Initiatives

The states of Hawaii and Rhode Island have passed new legislation to coordinate efforts on climate change adaptation. Both acts establish climate councils in the states. The Hawaii legislation also creates a mechanism for ongoing assessment of risks and adaptation options on a five-year cycle and mandates adaptation planning efforts that span both near-term and long-term priorities.
