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.

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.
