Climate Change

Preparing for the Impacts of a Changing Climate

Climate change presents a range of threats for local communities — from flooding to drought to the dangers of extreme temperatures. While prevention often seems to be the center of the conversation about climate change, Resilience United is committed to helping communities prepare its potential effects , especially in relation to vulnerable populations. Our approach includes helping communities to:

  • Ascertain how climate change acts as an environmental community stressor
  • Identify the most at-risk populations
  • Identify climate change issues not immediately evident, such as evacuation plans
  • Develop sustainable resilience plans to reduce the potential negative future impacts of climate change

Because the effects of climate change are generally gradual, inspiring action can be an uphill battle. That’s why Resilience United provides resources to help you gain buy-in from partners, focus coalitions on vulnerable populations, support implementation, and improve organizational leadership.
