Built Environment

The Built Environment Affinity Group of NCAnet comprises organizations whose members develop, maintain and/or apply standards and practices for the resilience and sustainability of the built environment and the public health, safety and welfare. Its purposes are to:
  1. Share relevant information from the National Climate Assessment with members of the participating organizations.
  2. Provide the National Climate Assessment with relevant information from participating organizations.
  3. Inform the National Climate Assessment of relevant unmet knowledge needs of members of the participating organizations.
The built environment includes buildings of all types, facilities for communications, energy production and distribution, industry, transportation of all modes, waste management, and water resources, and associated natural features.

Interests of participating organizations include information, services and products for planning, design, construction, operation, maintenance and renovation or removal of constructed facilities – their whole life cycle.
