There are a broad range of resilience actions that local and state governments can implement to address impacts from various climate hazards. Viable resilience options for many hazards include nature-based solutions. In practice, these solutions use natural systems or processes to lessen impacts of natural hazards, such as relying on natural floodplains or engineered reservoirs to capture and infiltrate rainfall to prevent flooding.
This Climate Resilience Implementation Guide provides step-by-step instructions to assist communities in implementing nature-based solutions. Grantees are encouraged to use this Guide for suggestions on how to effectively use Community Planning and Development (CPD)-funded programs and other resources to design and implement nature-based solutions.
