Steps To Resilience

This framework helps you document climate hazards that could harm the things you care about, decide which situations you most want to avoid, and come up with workable solutions to reduce your climate-related risks. Preparing a city to withstand weather and climate-related hazards can be addressed by applying these steps to regular updates of municipal plans. Watch the video, get an overview of the steps, or click any step to learn more.

Tools
Looking for climate data? Need to compile a Climate Vulnerability Assessment or Adaptation Plan? Our catalog of more than 200 digital tools can help you take steps to build resilience, from engaging a community to developing a climate action plan. Here's one example of the tools in our catalog:

Regions

Not all U.S. regions are currently represented on the site. To date, we have developed sections for the regions listed below. We are in the midst of developing content for additional regions, and are actively seeking volunteers who will gather teams of experts for the remaining regions. If your region is not listed below, you can find useful information on the rest of the site, including our Topic pages. For case studies and tools, you can use the Filter by region > links at the top of each page to find available information for all regions.
