Abstract: While climate change is water change, the water sector has been relatively slow in the United States –compared to the nation’s air, energy, and transportation sectors– in setting goals and taking actions, particularly in mitigating greenhouse gases (GHGs). That is changing now as states, communities, utilities, industries, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) develop water and climate strategies beyond just localized adaptation and resiliency plans.
