Major, D.C., and M. O'Grady, 2010: Adaptation assessment guidebook, New York City Panel on Climate Change. Ann. New York Acad. Sci., 1196, 229-292, doi:10.1111/j.1749-6632.2010.05324.x.

The New York City Panel on Climate Change (NPCC) frames climate change adaptation as an extension of risk management planning because it involves multiple layers of uncertainty. Traditionally, risk management has been used as a mechanism for planning in the face of uncertainties, especially in fields such as financial planning. More recently, risk management has begun to appear as a way to encourage planning for adaptations to climate change.

The Adaptation Assessment Guidebook (AAG) lays out a multi-step process to help stakeholders create an inventory of their at-risk infrastructure and develop adaptation strategies to address those identified risks. The steps outlined in this document are designed to be incorporated into the risk management, maintenance and operations, and capital planning processes of the agencies and organizations that manage and operate critical infrastructure.
