Case Studies: Critical Thresholds, Extreme Weather, and Building Resilience
NOAA’s Sectoral Applications Research Program (SARP) funded a research project that pilots a new approach to identifying extreme event thresholds in four communities in South Central United States.
The case studies focused on:
- A participatory process to develop locally-relevant climate projections based on thresholds for extreme weather events the communities
identified as most important.
- Climate change adaptation and resilience actions designed to address these extreme weather concerns.
- Strategeic use of on-going efforts to build on more than one aspect of resilience.
