Tool Kit

Welcome to the online Facilitated Community of Practice for road testing the Climate Resilience Toolkit

The Team

Those involved in this Climate Data Initiative project include Antioch University’s Center for Climate Preparedness and Community Resilience, NOAA and White House Office of Science & Technology Policy personnel, and a select group of end-user decision makers and planners in coastal communities from Virginia to Maine (see map).

 Climate Resilience Toolkit


The five-part Toolkit is located at and includes:
  1. Identifying the problem: Focus on climate stressors that threaten people, buildings, natural resources, or the economy in your area.
  2. Determining vulnerabilities: Identify specific populations, locations, and infrastructure that may be impacted by the climate problem you identified.
  3. Investigating options: Compile a list of potential solutions, drawing on the experiences of others who have addressed similar problems.
  4. Evaluating the risks and costs: Consider risks and values to analyze the costs and benefits of favored options. Select the best solution for your situation and make a plan.
  5. Taking action: Implement your plan and monitor your progress.

Financing Climate Change Solutions

Although there is widespread agreement on the need for adapting to the changing climate, there is no clear consensus on how much it will cost, or how communities can pay for it. This webinar will address what the future holds for financial support for emergency preparedness and longer range adaptation planning.
