Climate Change Toolkit Offers Insight into Potential Hazards

Climate change is resulting in unpredictable and severe weather. In addition to increased risk of wildfires and drought, sea level rise will affect millions. The U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit provides information on how to prepare for and mitigate the potential hazards of climate change. The toolkit includes planning assistance, case studies, and links to training opportunities. The Climate Explorer tool shows areas of climate change impact and stresses, along with a discussion of how different regions might be impacted. Just as we look to the historical record to evaluate the hazards that may affect our institutions and organizations, the Climate Resilience Toolkit gives us an opportunity to discover future hazards. Embrace a “climate-smart approach” and make sure you’re prepared for the challenges that climate change may bring to your community. For an overview of the contents of the Toolkit, a one-page flyer is available here to share, or view the Toolkit online here.
