Strategic Foresight Initiative: Climate Change, Long Term Trends and their Implications for Emergency Management
United States. Federal Emergency Management Agency
"A significant amount of existing research indicates that the world's climate is changing. Emergency managers should consider the implications of climate change regardless of the cause. Several climate change-related trends may present critical challenges to emergency managers and warrant in-depth analysis. These include: 1) Rising temperatures 2) Increased storm intensity and frequency 3) Rising sea levels 4) Changing drought and fire risk 5) Shifting threats to human health and disease patterns […] This document contains preliminary research conducted on behalf of the Strategic Foresight Initiative on the Climate Change driver. This research is intended to serve as a discussion point for further discussions, and does not represent a forecast by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). This paper is a starting point for conversations around a highly complex topic, and SFI [Strategic Foresight Initiative] encourages feedback about this paper from the emergency management community."

This HSDL abstract page contains some of the pieces you may need when citing a resource, such as the author, publisher and date information. We highly recommend you always refer to the resource itself as the most accurate source of information when citing. Here are some sources that can help with formatting citations (particularly for government documents).
