Climate Information: A National System Could Help Federal, State, Local and Private Sector Decision Makers Use Climate Information
J. Alfredo Gomez (au)
Over the last decade, the federal government incurred over $300 billion in costs due to extreme weather and fire. Costs are expected to grow as rare events become more common and intense due to climate change. State, local, and private sector decision makers also drive fiscal exposures, as they are responsible for infrastructure paid for with federal funds or eligible for disaster aid. This report examines (1) the extent to which federal efforts meet the climate information needs of decision makers; (2) examples of how other countries organized climate information systems; (3) whether and how federal efforts could be improved; and (4) the strengths and limitations of different options to provide climate information. Table and figures. This is a print on demand report.
