Ground-breaking Climate Change Mitigation Tool Allows Communities to Assess Risks


The Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management teamed up with the Colorado Water Conservation Board and FEMA to develop a web-based visualization tool called Future Avoided Cost Explorer (FACE) to help communities assess the economic risks of climate change. The interactive dashboard provides county-level and sector-level analysis of economic costs associated with climate change, population growth, and a variety of future scenarios. This tool illustrates the threat of increased vulnerabilities, economic disruption, and loss of life and ecosystem services.


Check out the dashboard here. If you want to dive into the study and methodology, you can find the full technical report here.
