Abstract
Abstract Evidence suggests that built environments will need to function under climatic conditions different from the recent past. Observed warming temperatures and changes in precipitation already suggest that historical observations and personal experience may not be reliable guides to future conditions. Yet, uncertainties remain about future climatic conditions, particularly at local and regional scales where land use planning decisions are made. Faced with this uncertainty, responding to climate change will require identifying key vulnerabilities of the built environment and developing adaptive strategies for reducing the risk of harmful impacts. One area of...
