This brief reviews three approaches that communities are pursuing to adapt to climate change:
New Mexico's Active Water Resource Management program, which put rules into place that allow for temporary water use changes in real time in case of drought.
The Water Utility Climate Alliance (WUCA), which was founded by water managers concerned by a gap in climate assessment and adaptation science needed to support their decisions.
Colorado's Joint Front Range Climate Change Vulnerability Study, which brings together the state and water utilities to assess climate change's impact on local water availability.
