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.

Annual Support

Annual Support

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 Annual Support option that includes:

  • Templates for most of the Tasks under each Step in the Guide
  • Tutorials for key concepts in the Guide
  • 3 hours of phone consulting per year
  • Monthly 60 minute live call-in forum
  • Email support and on-line community forum
  • On-line community forum
  • A web portal to access Annual Support resources

Other Services

Other Services are available independently of the Practical Guide to Developing Climate Resilience,
but they also fit well within the Climate Ready Communities planning framework.
