Resilient Communities Guidebook

The Resilient Communities Guidebook is intended to empower local and regional decision makers, including government officials, as well as business, nonprofit and community leaders to understand their climate vulnerability and develop shared priorities for action. The guidebook will have two components: A Playbook and an Idea Book. The Playbook will guide users through the process of building a team, analyzing vulnerability and assets, brainstorming and prioritizing actions, and identifying implementation steps. The Idea Book will provide examples of projects, programs, and policies that improve resilience across social, economic, and environmental domains.

NCORR will pilot the Resilient Communities Guidebook with regional groups as part of RISE program activities. Following revisions required after the pilot, it will also serve as a standalone resource for the entire state that can be used outside the RISE program.
