Climate Resilience Toolkit

This is a rich compilation of resources and tools to help decision-makers across the US identify their local climate threats and vulnerabilities and reduce their risks from impacts of climate​ variability and change. As part of President Obama's Climate Action Plan, the toolkit was developed by NOAA in partnership with NASA and other departments and agencies in the U.S. Global Change Research Program.

Teaching Tips

Toolkit was developed for communities to approach real climate challenges; in a classroom setting, it could be used in a group project focused on a particular climate resilience issue or in concert with local community efforts.

A great resource to use for preliminary research on a number of different topics within the climate change education umbrella.

The regional reports are particularly useful as a starting point in discussing how climate change is affecting each region of the US.

Can be used for students to study resilience in their community or region.
