President Today, FEMA Released the “Resources for Climate Change,” a document intended to assist state, local, tribal, and territorial partners in navigating FEMA resources regarding climate change.
These resources will support communities in building resilience and adapting to the impacts of climate change and funding for community adaptation strategies. The document outlines relevant FEMA resources, including those that can help communities:
- Identify and assess climate change risk.
- Consider climate change during hazard mitigation planning.
- Fund mitigation and climate adaptation strategies.
- Build community capacity to address climate risks.
The document also includes information on how to fund mitigation and climate adaptation strategies, how a community can build capacity to address climate change and how emergency managers and officials can include climate change in their hazard mitigation planning. Stakeholders will also be able to use the quick glance overview of all FEMA funding sources to help their planning efforts.
