The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Bureau of Reclamation published the report, "Addressing Climate Change in Long-Term Water Resources Planning and Management: User Needs for Improving Tools and Information," in January 2011. It identifies the needs of local, state, and federal water management agencies for climate change information and tools to support long-term planning.
The report seeks to focus research and technology efforts to address information and tool gaps needed for longer-term water resources planning and management. It found there were gaps in the information and tools to help water managers understand how to use climate change information to make decisions, how to assess the responses of natural systems to climate change, and how to communicate the results and uncertainties of climate change to decision-makers.
