Accelerating resiliency planning in communities across the Commonwealth

Nashville MPO’s Building Resilience: A Climate Adaptation Plan

This plan was developed by representatives of Nashville Metropolitan Organization (Nashville and surrounding counties) in collaboration with Climate Solutions University (CSU), the Cumberland River Compact, and the Model Forest Policy Program. The goal was to assess risks and develop pathways to better deal with climate change and non-climate challenges that include extreme weather events, increasing temperatures, changing precipitation patterns, and rapid growth and development that pose threats to the ecosystems, infrastructure, and people of the region and require collaborative action at all levels (government, nonprofit, business, and citizen) to respond adequately. These changes will impact the region’s access to clean drinking water, clean air, fertile soil, outdoor recreation, economic opportunity, and can pose serious public health risks. These changes have a disproportionate impact on the communities and people in the region that are most vulnerable because of their socioeconomic status, health, age, or preexisting conditions.
