The impacts of climate change are being felt today in communities across the country and increasingly test our resilience. Exercises provide a method for participants to visualize a future that is outside their direct experience and evaluate options for constructive action to adapt to climate changes already occurring and those to come. The Long-Term Community Resilience Exercise Resource Guide is a “one-stop–shop” for any jurisdiction or organization looking to conduct a climate-focused exercise. This guide equips users with:
- A dictionary with common terms to ensure a shared understanding of climate-related terminology and principles before an exercise.
- Tools and templates for planning and conducting climate-focused exercises.
- Resources including funding opportunities, risk assessments and training programs.
