For those communities that want additional support and resources when using A Practical Guide to Building Climate Resilience, the Geos Institute provides a subscription service that is purchased on an annual basis.
The Geos Institute will begin a commercial pilot for the Climate Ready Communities subscription service in May, 2018. This pilot will include all components of the subscription service, which have been beta-reviewed and will soon be ready for use by communities.
The annual subscription includes:
- Templates for each step (see samples below)
- Tutorials for each template and key concepts in the Guide (see samples below)
- Monthly 60 minute, live call-in forum
- Email support to address technical system issues or basic questions
- 2 hours of phone consulting per year
- On-line community forum
Following the pilot program, we expect subscriptions to be publicly available beginning December, 2018.
