This report summarizes the most recent research on the likely impacts of climate change at various scales: regional, neighborhood, and site or building. This report predicts climate change by region, and wherever possible, presents a range of predicted future characteristics in the categories of temperature, precipitation, coastlines, air quality, pests, and fire. This report also explores how climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts at all scales interact synergistically, with a focus on how green building professionals can approach adaptation in the built environment.
