This document, published by Center for Climate and Energy Solutions does a great job explaining what climate resilience is and why it must be an essential part of our planning processes.
Making Cities Resilient 2030 (MCR2030) is a programmatic approach developed by the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) to help cities reduce risk and build resilience.
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.
