Urban Adaptation Assessment (UAA)

Municipalities can check how U.S. cities rank on climate risk and readiness. The tool can help cities make informed choices about local-level adaptation and planning strategies.

The Urban Adaptation Assessment (UAA) is an interactive database funded by the Kresge Foundation and led by the Notre Dame Global Adaptation Initiative (ND-GAIN). The database provides a rich dataset within a visual platform to give leaders the data they need to make decisions on how best to adapt and prepare.

Encompassing data from over 270 U.S. cities whose populations are above 100,000, the UAA gives viewers a way to explore connections among vulnerabilities, climate disasters, adaptive capacities, and how these are distributed within a city.
