Regional Resilience Toolkit: 5 Steps to build large scale resilience to natural disaster
The landscape and scope of emergency management is changing quickly. Ten years ago, FEMA managed an average of 108 disasters a year. Today they manage an average of 311 disasters plus the ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic. In December 2021, FEMA released their 2022-2026 Strategic Plan that addresses these changes.
In December 2021 the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) published “FEMA Resources for Climate Resilience.” This publication provides a roadmap of FEMA programs and initiatives that advance community climate resilience. Building resilience is a long-term, ongoing process and this resource offers guidance for each step along the way – including funding opportunities, applicable FEMA programs, tools, and resources.
