Climate Change Adaptation - Virginia
Climate Change History
At the end of 2008 the Virginia Governor’s Commission on Climate Change released its final report, assisted by the Center for Climate Strategies (CCS). As with other CCS plans the focus of Virginia’s Climate Action Plan is on greenhouse gas reductions (mitigation), but the plan does include a section on preparations for imminent climate change effects (adaptation).
Current & Future Action
Virginia is not developing an adaptation plan at this time.
Pilot Programs/Current Studies
The state does not, as yet, have any specific pilots or case studies dealing with wetlands and climate change.
