"^^xsd:string; gcis:isFindingOf <https://data.globalchange.gov/report/nca3/chapter/northeast>; gcis:isFindingOf <https://data.globalchange.gov/report/nca3>; ## Properties of the finding: gcis:findingProcess "Results of the Northeast Regional Climate assessment workshop that was held on November 17-18, 2011, at Columbia University, with approximately 60 attendees, were critically important in our assessment. The workshop was the beginning of the process that led to the foundational Technical Input Report (TIR). That 313-page report consisted of seven chapters by 13 lead authors and more than 60 authors in total. Public and private citizens or institutions who service and anticipate a role in maintaining support for vulnerable populations in Northeast cities and communities indicated that they are making plans to judge the demand for adaptation services. These stakeholder interactions were surveyed and engaged in the preparation of this chapter. We are confident that the TIR authors made a vigorous attempt to engage various agencies at the state level and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that have broader perspectives. \r\nThe author team engaged in multiple technical discussions via teleconferences, which included careful review of the foundational TIR and approximately 50 additional technical inputs provided by the public, as well as the other published literature and professional judgment. Discussions were followed by expert deliberation of draft key messages by the authors and targeted consultation with additional experts by the lead author of each key message."^^xsd:string; gcis:descriptionOfEvidenceBase "The key message relies heavily on extensive evidence documented in the Northeast Technical Input Report (TIR). Technical Input reports (48) on a wide range of topics were also received and reviewed as part of the Federal Register Notice solicitation for public input. Many of the key references cited in the TIR reflected experiences and processes developed in iterative stakeholder engagement concerning risk management that have been heavily cited and employed in new venues – local communities like Keane (NH) and New York City, for example. \r\nVarious regional assessments were also consulted to capture key issues, concerns and opportunities in the region (for example, for Delaware, Maine, Maryland, and Long Island, NY). In addition, there have been agency and government white paper reports describing proposed adaptation strategies based on climate impact assessments. We discovered that 10 of the 12 states in the Northeast have statewide adaptation plans in place or under development (many plans can be found at: http://georgetownclimate.org/node/3324). \r\n"^^xsd:string; gcis:assessmentOfConfidenceBasedOnEvidence "This Key Message is simply a statement of observed fact, so confidence language is not applicable."^^xsd:string; gcis:newInformationAndRemainingUncertainties "That most Northeast states have begun to plan for adaptation is a matter of record. That few adaptation plans have been implemented is confirmed in Technical Inputs submitted to the National Climate Assessment process as well as prior assessments (http://nca2009.globalchange.gov/northeast), which informed the 2009 NCA. \r\nKey uncertainties looking forward include: 1) the extent to which proposed adaptation strategies will be implemented given a range of factors including competing demands and limited funding; 2) the role of the private sector and individual action in adaptation, roles which can be difficult to document; 3) the extent of the federal role in adaptation planning and implementation; and 4) how changes in technology and the world economy may change the feasibility of specific adaptation strategies. \r\n"^^xsd:string; a gcis:Finding . ## This finding cites the following entities: <https://data.globalchange.gov/report/nca3/chapter/northeast/finding/early-stage-adaptation-incorporation> cito:cites <https://data.globalchange.gov/report/nycpanelonclimch-cri2009>; biro:references <https://data.globalchange.gov/reference/207ddc2e-343a-4017-83e1-9ac70c02f723>. <https://data.globalchange.gov/report/nca3/chapter/northeast/finding/early-stage-adaptation-incorporation> cito:cites <https://data.globalchange.gov/book/64c0429d-0187-4d7c-9e3a-efb183737277>; biro:references <https://data.globalchange.gov/reference/417521de-541f-44bd-8747-ac306ede3d83>. <https://data.globalchange.gov/report/nca3/chapter/northeast/finding/early-stage-adaptation-incorporation> cito:cites <https://data.globalchange.gov/report/nca-climchne-2012>; biro:references <https://data.globalchange.gov/reference/5f2be58e-4fcf-439c-bba8-1ed29be711fe>. <https://data.globalchange.gov/report/nca3/chapter/northeast/finding/early-stage-adaptation-incorporation> cito:cites <https://data.globalchange.gov/report/nca2>; biro:references <https://data.globalchange.gov/reference/e251f590-177e-4ba6-8ed1-6f68b5e54c8a>. <https://data.globalchange.gov/report/nca3/chapter/northeast/finding/early-stage-adaptation-incorporation> cito:cites <https://data.globalchange.gov/report/nyserda-report-11-18>; biro:references <https://data.globalchange.gov/reference/ed76baaa-e176-4f94-8291-dd1b146bbe16>. <https://data.globalchange.gov/report/nca3/chapter/northeast/finding/early-stage-adaptation-incorporation> cito:cites <https://data.globalchange.gov/report/newyorkacademyofsciences-riskmanagement-2009>; biro:references <https://data.globalchange.gov/reference/fbb1a8af-292f-4fa4-9ed9-2724c65c5f29>.
