The Climate Ready Communities Program

Does your community need to build climate resilience? Are you having a hard time figuring out where to start? We can help.

As the intensity and frequency of hurricanes, floods, droughts, wildfires, heat waves, and other climate-driven disturbances increase, local leaders around the country are realizing they need to build resilience to protect their communities. But many community leaders do not know where to start and they do not have funding to hire a high-priced consultant. Sound familiar?  The Climate Ready Communities program is now available to address this challenge.

About the Program

Building on its ClimateWise® consulting services, the Geos Institute is launching the Climate Ready Communities program to bring Whole Community Resilience to local governments by utilizing an assisted “Do-It-Yourself” approach. Download the program flyer.
