In accordance with Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) 2‐100‐01, Installation Master Planning, and other DoD guidance, Federal planners are directed “to consider” climate change in the development of Master Plans and projects. This Handbook provides the analytical framework, as well as tools and other guidance, to help planners understand how to consider climate change in their plans and projects for installation infrastructure. More specifically, this document leads planners through the process of identifying and assessing possible adaptation action alternatives, or methods for adapting to the impacts of climate change. These adaptation measures are intended to improve their installation’s resiliency, or capability to anticipate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from significant hazards. It is designed to provide a mechanism for gathering additional information that could inform a master plan. The Stages and Steps in this Handbook are intended to be iterative such that, depending on the results of your analysis or the level of detail required, you might be able to proceed with preliminary information at a particular point, ascertain what kind of information that yields, and repeat the process with more detailed information or better capabilities at a later date.
