Standards to adapt to climate change
Standards seek a specific action or outcome, providing policymakers more certainty. In the adaptation context refer to those actions that put in place a requirement to take actions that would increase resilience. This includes not just requirements to take climate action but also requirements to understand and disclose risk, to reduce conflicting responses between the natural and built environment, and to ensure that adaptation is funded and enacted in a manner that ensures equitable access and impact.
The boxes below allow you to filter and view specific policy options that establish standards or requirements to adapt to climate change. Each includes a brief description, design considerations, U.S. experience, additional resources, and related policies.
