Climate Change Vulnerability Assessments

Western Wildland Environmental Threat Assessment Center staff and others have been systematically reviewing Western states' environmental and socioeconomic conditions in relation to how they might be negatively impacted by predicted climatic changes. These vulnerability assessments can be comprehensive or resource-specific.

Land managers and community planners can benefit from the adaptation strategies and tactics presented in each assessment.
