What is the Resilience Ecosystem?

The Resilience Ecosystem (RE) is an open and inclusive community of public and private entities working individually and collectively to help communities and businesses in all U.S. regions and sectors to adapt/build resilience to climate-related hazards. Though federal and non-profit entities are committed to sustaining organizational and financial support for it, the RE is not an entity, organization, or professional society; it is not “owned” by any person or group and it doesn’t seek to compete with anyone.    

It’s still winter, but heat season is right around the corner!

The Climate Explorer has offered public-friendly access to climate projections for every county in the contiguous United States for more than five years, and the development team continues work to improve the tool. We're pleased to announce that Climate Explorer Version 3.0 is now available.
