SCIPP, the Southern Climate Impacts Planning Program (a RISA team), has published a new report: South Central U.S. Hazard and Climate Change Planning Assessment.  The report looks at decision makers’ hazard planning practices, climate change planning practices and information and applications across SCIPP’s six-state region.

The study was first completed in 2009 and – after revising the survey again – the SCIPP team distributed the survey again to see what changes have occurred.

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2011, the United States experienced a record high number (14) of climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 670 lives, caused more than 6,000 injuries, and cost $55 billion in damages. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
