The Denver Climate Adaptation Plan outlines the key climate vulnerabilities the City faces and lays out agency actions to prepare for and address those vulnerabilities. Acting now to prepare for climate change can ensure future generations will enjoy clean air and water, economic opportunity, effective and efficient infrastructure, parks and open spaces, and a healthy environment that supports wellbeing.
Three top vulnerabilities are identified in the plan:
- An increase in temperature and urban heat island effect
- An increase in frequency of extreme weather events
- Reduced snowpack and earlier snowmelt
