A Comprehensive Review of Climate Adaptation in the United States: More than before, but less than needed

Rosina Bierbaum of the University of Michigan and several colleagues recently published a review paper that compiles climate change adaptation activities at Federal, regional, state, tribal, and local levels.  This publication will be a helpful resource for anyone interested in keeping up-to-date with the field of adaptation or looking for specific examples of adaptation efforts from a variety of sectors and locations.  This paper also examines barriers and research needs for large-scale implementation of adaptation efforts.  The Climate Change Response Framework is featured as an example of a project that crosses scales and overcomes many of the typical problems that can hinder climate change adaptation.
