Climate Change Adaptation & Resilience Markets (updated Q4 2020) provides a strategic review of the Climate Change Adaptation & Resilience industry, history, client markets, market drivers, and business strategy of many players.

This report also delivers an overview of the U.S. and global climate change industry and its nine business segments.

The U.S. climate change Adaptation & Resilience industry is still emerging, led by consulting & engineering firms doing assessment, risk science, modeling, and planning work, but construction, contracting and O&M is coming, along with the technologies needed to deliver and sustain it.

The financial community is increasingly becoming involved with ESG standards, public disclosures, ratings agencies, and insurance companies playing increasingly influential roles.

CCBJ’s assessment of climate change adaptation & resilience markets identifies funded projects in a variety of regions conducted by utilities, states, ports, institutions, government agencies, non-profits, universities as well as a few well-placed consulting & engineering firms. Design, engineering and construction of responses or preventive measures will ultimately be the bulk of the market.

This 500+-page report maps out the Climate Change Adaptation Industry and Resilience Markets into service and client breakdowns with market forecasts, and profiles of existing projects and companies engaged in the practice. This report includes information regarding the broader climate change industry.
