A Practical Guide to Building Climate Resilience

Most local governments find themselves facing difficult climate resilience challenges with few financial resources or help from state or federal governments. Climate resilience planning can be intimidating and overwhelming.

Our guide will help you break down the process into manageable steps.

CRC Support Package

Our Guide is intended to be a do-it-yourself model with many free on-line resources listed. However, assistance with certain steps of the process can help it move more quickly. To serve these needs, we have developed the Climate Ready Communities® Support Package that includes:

  • 29 downloadable templates for many of the Tasks in the Guide
  • 9 tutorials for key concepts in the Guide
  • Access to the Climate Ready Community® library of climate resilience webinars
  • A 1 hour get-acquainted phone call with Geos Institute staff
  • Access to the CRC subscriber portal
  • An online forum for subscriber communications
  • Track progress through each step and task
