ABSTRACT

US Army Corps of Engineers, 2012 Climate Change Adaptation Plan and Report   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Executive Summary: "The hydrologic and coastal processes underlying water resources management are very sensitive to changes in climate and weather. The US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) has a compelling need to understand and adapt to climate change and variability because our Civil Works Program and associated water resources infrastructure represent a tremendous Federal investment that supports public safety and local and national economic growth. In response to growing body of evidence about climate impacts to our missions and operations, we published a foundational report with other water resources agencies: 'Climate Change and Water Resources Management: A Federal Perspective'. Since that time, we have developed a governance structure to support mainstreaming adaptation by establishing an overarching 'USACE Climate Change Adaptation Policy Statement' and a Climate Change Adaptation Steering Council."
