The city of Pittsburgh and its surrounding region face significant—and potentially growing—stormwater management challenges. Analysis can help better understand the system's vulnerabilities and identify solutions.
Fresh water is an essential and scarce resource. Ensuring its appropriate use and availability for sanitation, drinking, manufacturing, leisure, recreation, and agriculture requires significant planning. Over the past decade, RAND has been working directly with water planners from agencies and utilities across the United States to help them address climate change and other long-term uncertain factors in their planning. In these projects, RAND has deployed novel methods that help planners to develop and evaluate water management strategies that are more robust to an uncertain future.
