This tool is designed to help you determine if given climate change your project will continue to deliver intended benefits.
The Checklist supports your ability to:
- Explicitly evaluate the implications of future conditions on project function, longevity and impact
- Build climate consideration directly into funding, permitting and planning phases
- Reduce liabilities or avoid actions that will be ineffective under future conditions
Step 1: Climate Quick Check
Identify how the project may be impacted by climate change over its lifetime by considering a range of indicators
Step 2: Evaluation of Climate Impact on a Project
Explore potential of climate risk factors by answering specific questions and considering relevant, available data
Step 3: Synopsis & Adaptation Options
For each identified vulnerability in Step 2, develop adaptation options to avoid, minimize or mitigate future negative impacts, while delivering intended benefits. Use adaptation support resources to find potential options.
