Report 4800: Climate Change Adaptation(updated July 2014) focuses on the U.S. climate change adaptation industry and prospects for global growth. The U.S. climate change adaptation industry is still emerging, led by consulting & engineering firms doing assessment, risk science, modeling and planning work. CCBJ estimates that adaptation is a $700-million industry and will grow to a billion-dollar industry in the United States by 2016, followed by more substantial contracting growth once design and construction of adaptation measures begin in earnest. The global market already is on the order of $2 billion in 2013.
CCBJ's assessment of climate change adaptation markets identifies funded projects in a variety of regions conducted by government agencies, non-profits, universities as well as a few well-placed consulting & engineering firms. Design, engineering and construction of responses or preventive measures will ultimately be the bulk of the market, but most believe this activity is unlikely to take off within a 5-year time frame in the U.S. However, markets in the developing world may see earlier movement depending on international funding agreements.
This report maps out the Climate Change Adaptation Industry with market forecasts, and profiles of existing projects and companies engaged in the practice. The table of Content lists the numerous companies whose practice areas are profiled.
