  • 5 November 2013

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.
