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.
The Resilience Ecosystem aims to achieve four ultimate outcomes:
- accelerate and grow the number of adaptation / resilience-building actions taken in communities and businesses all across the nation;
- provide equitable access to the resources and decision services needed to reduce climate-related risks among all U.S. populations;
- reduce loss of life and damages to human and natural systems from extreme events; and
- strengthen our economy and increase job growth in adaptation science and services.
