      Economics of Climate Resilience

      Headwaters Economics provides non-partisan research that helps improve community development and land management decisions. Their December 2019 report on economics and climate adaptation is a useful resource if your community is wrestling with the economics of climate resilience strategies. From the Executive summary of the report:

      “This report extends the application of economics beyond monetary costs and benefits or jobs and income, providing information to help local governments make the case for action The report demonstrates how economic analyses can help sustainability directors, local government staff engaged with sustainability and climate work, and other partners make concise, data-driven cases for community adaptation and resilience.”

      The report can be found at https://headwaterseconomics.org/equity/climate-change/economics-climate-adaptation/
