CREAT

Climate Resilience Evaluation and Awareness Tool

Climate Resilience Evaluation and Awareness Tool (CREAT) was designed for water utilities to assesses local climate change risk. The model identifies the climate change risks that pose the greatest threat to local communities. CREAT is designed to improve understanding of risk thresholds and predict subsequent asset failures under climate change.
