The Government Accountability Office (GAO) is conducting several climate change and adaptation-related studies at the moment. They recently released their study: “CLIMATE CHANGE: Future Federal Adaptation Efforts Could Better Support Local Infrastructure Decision Makers,” that examines: 

1.     The impacts of climate change on roads and bridges, wastewater systems, and NASA centers; 

2.     The extent to which climate change is incorporated into infrastructure planning;

3.     Factors that enabled some decision makers to implement adaptive measures; and

4.     Federal efforts to address local adaptation needs, as well as potential opportunities for improvement.

This study includes high-level recommendations for executive action in this area which you might be interested in. Here is more information on the study: http://www.gao.gov/products/GAO-13-242.
