National Action Plan for Managing Freshwater Resources in a Changing Climate

A plan published by the White House Climate Change Adaptation Taskforce to help freshwater resource managers assure adequate water supplies, safeguard water quality and aquatic ecosystems, and protect human life, health and property. The plan lays out six goals for effective management: 

  • Establish a Planning Process to Adapt Water Resources Management to a Changing Climate
  • Improve Water Resources and Climate Change Information for Decision-Making
  • Strengthen Assessment of Vulnerability of Water Resources to Climate Change
  • Expand Water Use Efficiency
  • Support Integrated Water Resources Management
  • Support Training and Outreach to Build Response Capability
 

Adapting to Climate Change: A Planning Guide for State Coastal Managers

A guide from NOAA Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management to help coastal managers develop and implement adaptation plans in the face of climate change. The guide is designed to help U.S. state and territorial coastal managers develop and implement adaptation plans to reduce the impacts and consequences of climate change and climate variability. It was written in response to a request from state coastal managers for guidance from NOAA on adaptation planning in the coastal zone.
