The enumeration of climate change impacts on various sectors is widely established through the ongoing assessment process of the California Climate Change Assessments ( CNRA 2018b ) and the National Climate Assessments ( USGCRP 2018b ). This chapter seeks to advance a process by which local governments and asset managers can begin to synthesize climate assessments with asset management assets. This chapter is not intended to be exhaustive in identifying the connection between impacts, stresses, shocks and hazards by asset class. Rather it is intended to frame a set of inquiries and processes that begin to internalize types of risk and opportunity that have historically fallen outside of the purview of conventional practices in asset and portfolio management.
