Report 4800: the U.S. Climate Change Adaptation Industry looks at prospects for global growth. The U.S. climate change adaptation industry is just emerging, led by consulting & engineering firms doing assessment and planning work. CCBJ estimates that adaptation will grow to a billion-dollar industry in the United States by 2015, followed by exponential growth once design and construction of adaptation measures begin in earnest. CCBJ’s assessment of climate change adaptation markets identified a small number of funded projects involving government agencies, non-profits, and universities, in addition to a few well-placed consulting & enginering firms. Design, engineering and construction of responses or preventive measures will ultimately form the majority of the market, but most believe this activity is unlikely to take off within a 10-year time frame in the U.S. However, markets in the developing world may see earlier movement depending on international funding agreements.
This 37-page report maps out the Climate Change Adaptation Industry with market forecasts, and profiles of existing projects and companies engaged in the practice.
