The objective of this work is to develop a consistent fact base that quantifies climate risks in the U.S. Gulf Coast and helps inform economically sensible approaches for addressing this risk. It represents the first comprehensive analysis of climate risks and adaptation economics along the U.S. Gulf Coast. The scope of this analysis includes Coastal counties and parishes considering a strip of land up to 70 miles inland across the shoreline, ranging from southern Texas, to Coastal Mississippi and Alabama. Since this work is primarily focused on areas of the Gulf Coast where the energy is key to the economy (the Energy Gulf Coast), Florida is excluded from the analysis. The area of study includes 800 zip codes across 77 counties and parishes, and covers a population of ~12 million people, and an annual GDP of ~$630 MM Show more
