US Climate Resilience Map: Pathways for City Solutions

“The Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht-Rockefeller Foundation Resilience Center (Arsht-Rock) today launched the US Climate Resilience Map: A Pathway for City Solutions. This new, publicly available online tool is the first-of-its-kind to map both climate risk and social vulnerability across the United States, arming city leaders and community members with census tract-level understanding and visualization of local climate risks and success stories of communities that built resilience to those risks. Developed with support from JPMorgan Chase, this national map includes six indicators of temperature, land, and water climate risk and fifteen social indicators spanning socioeconomic, housing, disability, and minority status factors that exacerbate these risks. The US Climate Resilience Map also highlights successful, on-the-ground resilience interventions to address and reduce the impact of ever-increasing incidents of flood, wildfire, drought, extreme precipitation, and extreme heat in 10 cities across the continental United States – Norfolk, VA, Los Angeles, CA, Charlotte, NC, New York, NY, New Orleans, LA, Seattle, WA, San Antonio, TX, Tucson, AZ, Boulder, CO, and Louisville, KY – that can be replicated by similarly at-risk states and cities…Explore the map by selecting which state or county you would like to analyze…”
