Mainstreaming Climate Change Adaptation Strategies Into New York State Department of Transportation's Operations

The proposed work will assist the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) in integrating climate change risk assessment and management into the Department's decision, policy and planning processes utilizing established and effective risk management and adaptation planning methods. The work will be carried out by the Principal Investigator (PI), a leader in adaptation planning; the Advisory Working Group on Transportation and Climate Change Adaptation (AWG); and an M.S.-level Project Manager (PM) in conjunction with NYSDOT staff. The AWG, composed of distinguished experts in transportation and climate change, will provide inputs and guidance and review the principal study tasks and accomplishments performed by the PI and the PM. The development of a suggested extension, following the completion of the work, is also proposed to ensure long-run integration of climate change adaptation into NYSDOT programs.<p> </p>
