This project developed and tested a community-specific participatory process to identify and develop climate projections around impact-relevant extreme events and guide climate change adaptation and resilience efforts. Over the course of 2015 and 2016, four small- to medium-sized communities in the South Central United States joined a multi-disciplinary team to:
- Collaborate on identifying critical thresholds for extreme weather events in their communities;
- Create downscaled climate projections specific to those thresholds;
- Review the customized climate projections; and
- Identify and implement a resilience action project.
SCIPP worked with two of the four communities, Miami, Oklahoma and San Angelo, Texas. For more information, please see the project materials that are linked below.
