About Us

Our goal is to ensure that communities of all sizes in the US and Canada have effective climate resilience programs in place to protect their people, natural resources, economy, infrastructure, and culture.

Over the past 10 years of helping communities understand and adapt to changing climate conditions, our team has developed a proven planning framework known as Whole Community Resilience – a cross-sector, multi-stakeholder approach that is adaptive over time and creates multiple benefits across the community.

The framework aims to not only develop a plan, but also to strengthen local adaptive capacity, which ensures that communities have the skills necessary to update their climate resilience plans over time.

Support Team

We are a team of experienced climate adaptation planners, scientists, and GIS analysts who have helped many different communities understand the local reality of changing conditions and create solutions that build resilience.
