The U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit is focused on providing information and tools provided by U.S. federal science agencies. Interagency teams help set the Toolkit’s scope and provide content for topic areas and geographic regions determined by the USGCRP for the National Climate Assessment.
If you work for or with a federal science agency and would like to contribute content in one or more of these areas, please peruse the information below, as well as the guidance information and templates found in this public Google folder. If you cannot access Google applications, please let us know and we can provide the information in PDF format.
We may eventually widen our scope to include information, tools, case studies, and reports from state, local, and tribal governments.
Case studies are brief narratives (suggested 400–800 words) highlighting examples of real people or communities who recognize climate-related issues and take action to build resilience. Consult our Tips for Developing a Case Study (PDF) for more guidance.
To submit a candidate story, please provide the narrative as a Word document along with a completed Case Study Metadata Template (PDF). Completed stories (the narrative and completed Metadata Template) should be submitted via email to LuAnn Dahlman and Nina Hall.
We encourage contributors to provide graphics (i.e., photographs, maps, graphs, charts) to accompany submitted content. Consult our Standards for Graphics and Video (PDF). We can also help you find appropriate images if needed. Please provide graphic files as separate digital files (JPG format preferred), with appropriate titles and captions, via email with your submitted content.
