GLRPPR Sector Resource: Green Building and Climate Resilience: Understanding Impacts and Preparing for Changing Conditions

Title:
Green Building and Climate Resilience: Understanding Impacts and Preparing for Changing Conditions

Abstract:
This report represents one of the first attempts to compile all research on the impacts of climate change on the built environment in the United States and to link impacts with strategies for addressing them. It 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. It contains a set of specific strategies that can be used to enhance resilience and provide adaptive benefits, including 'no-regrets' strategies which aim to generate social and/or economic benefits whether or not climate change occurs. The information and strategies presented in the report provide a solid baseline from which green building professionals can begin to address climate change adaptation in their projects.
