Climate Change Impacts, Vulnerabilities, and Adaptation in The San Francisco Bay Area: A Synthesis of PIER Program Reports
CA Energy Commission (CEC)
This paper synthesizes San Francisco Bay Area-focused findings from research conducted in 2010–2012 as part of the state’s Vulnerability and Adaptation study sponsored by the CA Energy Commission’s Public Interest Energy Research (PIER) Program. Studies synthesized here show how these climate changes increase risks to society and natural ecosystems in a number of ways. Results show that depending on the vulnerability of human and natural communities, and their abilities to respond to these growing risks through adaptive changes, the San Francisco Bay Area could experience either significant impacts or maintain its resilience in the face of a rapidly changing environment.
