CCBJ Vol VII No 01-03: Climate Risk Assessment and Adaptation Markets

The Adaptation segment of the Climate Change Industry continues to gain strength and expand in scope. CCBJ estimates the U.S. market for climate risk and adaptation services in the range $120-150 million in 2013, and CCBJ's January-February 2014 survey of climate consultancies and experts produced a variety of results in project sizes, market drivers and client and geographic areas. Overall, providers of climate adaptation services will not be surprised to see 20-30% growth in their practice areas and are planning to staff up accordingly.

While public infrastructure managers - especially in water, wastewater and transportation - have been the most active in assessing and planning for climate change, mining, oil and gas, food and beverage, apparel and other consumer goods firms with far-flung supply chains are taking climate change risks more seriously.
