The Peace Corps 2014 Climate Adaptation Plan intends to expand an organizational understanding of climate change and its impacts on administrative services and Volunteer programs. To evaluate impacts to mission, policies, programs, and operations, the key climate stressors identified for analysis include the following:

  • Temperature change—both short and long-term changes
  • Precipitation change—variations in the amount, intensity, and seasonality of rainfall, and changes in hydrologic regimes
  • Sea level rise and storm surge—changes in frequency, intensity, and duration of storm surges, coastal inundation, saline intrusion, and erosion
  • Extreme events—changing trends and patterns of hurricanes, floods, droughts, windstorms, wildfires, and landslides
