The Responses to Climate Change Program is developing methods, policies and processes for effective adaptation of U. S. Army Core of Engineers (USACE) projects, systems and programs to climate change vulnerabilities. The Program transfers knowledge to the FY11-20 Reducing Civil Works Vulnerability Program which addresses different classes of projects, additional classes of change (e.g., demographic, social values, land use, political values), and climate change mitigation. The RCC will also identify knowledge and technology gaps to guide research and development activities and will transfer knowledge and technology to other USACE programs. RCC Program team members will remain actively engaged with global climate change discussions and investigations inside and outside the USACE as they begin to implement adaptation projects. RCC Program demonstration projects will allow USACE to start the process of adaptation while continuing to test and refine analyses supporting climate change adaptation.
