Explore how sub-national jurisdictions in the US and China are taking action to build resilience to climate change in this series of case studies produced by the Georgetown Climate Center. The case studies compare how these diverse jurisdictions are responding to similar climate impacts. For example, Louisiana and Shanghai both must reduce vulnerability to coastal storms and flooding, Austin, Texas, and Beijing are addressing water scarcity, and Washington, D.C., and Hong Kong are dealing with urban heat impacts.
