Communities Lack Resilience to Climate Change

Communities are at the front lines of experiencing and responding to impacts ranging from sea-level rise, inundation and flash-flooding to drought and extreme heat events – and the associated risks to everything from public health to the ecosystem services that support communities.

Climate resilience planning tools for small communities

Small to mid-size communities are eager to have a climate resiliency plan but often lack resources and tools to develop a plan of action.

As a nonprofit, we search the landscape of solutions to promote the need for climate action plans for all communities regardless of size or resources.

One such solution that is in the market provides a tool to guide, step by step, smaller communities in developing a plan. Essentially, a 'turbo-tax' software tool that will develop a plan based on filling and completing basic information requirements.
