From Scientific American: U.S. Needs Smarter Disaster Planning

Defenses against storms and floods, built on past events, will fail unless emergency planners use forward-looking data that account for rapid climate change.

 

Update from Don Watson: The DRAFT Report (116 pp.) is comprehensive with measures across a number of sectors not commonly referenced including community volunteerism as measure of capacity and is downloadable here.
