Want to find cities around the world facing similar challenges? We’ve got an algorithm that does just that. Select the city closest to you to see how your projected climate impacts compare with other communities. Then explore the solutions those cities are investing in to get ideas about how to upgrade your infrastructure to meet future needs.

? The Atlas used a statistical method, Mahalanobis Distance, to evaluate similarity based on the projected change in 2030 (from a 1995 baseline) of four variables: annual mean temperature, annual total precipitation, minimum monthly precipitation and 100 year return period daily precipitation.

Extreme Precipitation (mm) in 2030 ? Projections of extreme precipitation in 2030 are projections of 100 year return period daily precipitation. This is the total amount of rain that would fall during a 24-hour period during a single extreme rain event that has a 1% chance of occurring in any one year.
