As the climate changes, impacts such as higher temperatures, rising seas, and more extreme and frequent weather events affect the natural, built, and human systems that we rely on for our safety, security, and well-being. Climate risk and vulnerability assessments elucidate systems’ exposure, sensitivity, and adaptive capacity to the impacts of climate change–allowing decision-makers to better understand these risks and identify the actions they can take now to be more prepared and resilient.
Cadmus’ climate risk and vulnerability assessments help clients identify their climate-related risks, prepare for anticipated challenges, and understand the new opportunities associated with managing these risks to go beyond business as usual. We design and perform assessments at scales ranging from cities to watersheds to nationwide, enhanced by cutting-edge research and user-friendly tools.
And because climate change does not respect jurisdictional boundaries, our approach involves collaboration across stakeholder groups and integrates climate preparedness into existing emergency, hazard mitigation, and development plans. Streamlining and embedding climate resilience across an organization, city, or agency’s systems helps ensure no critical preparedness actions are overlooked.
