States and communities in the Mountain West region are now looking to advance their climate planning efforts, and there is a need for usable, reputable scientific information to help guide those efforts. For example, in recent years, WWA staff has worked with the Utah Division of Emergency Management to provide hazard-relevant climate information for the state’s updated Hazard Mitigation Plan, which can provide a foundation for more in-depth climate planning at the state agency level.
