U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit
The Climate Resilience Toolkit is a web portal coordinated by the Office of Science and Technology Policy and the Council on Environmental Quality in conjunction with several other federal agencies. You'll find a collection of information, scientific tools, and expertise to help manage climate-related issues. These tools can be used for managing risk, identifying opportunities, and resilience in extreme climate-related events. The tools include maps, resource atlases, mapping software, biofuel and bioenergy data sets, carbon tracking and storage, and many more resources for cities and adaptation. Additionally, there is a collection of case studies, topic narratives, and training courses which support the maps and climate tools. Managers will find a comprehensive 5-step process for identifying, researching, and taking action to achieve resilience.
