Long-Term Community Resilience Exercise Resource Guide from FEMA

New material, as of November 2021.

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.
