City of Asheville Resilience workshops
The NEMAC team led City of Asheville staff through a five-step resilience planning process developed for the U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit called the “Steps to Resilience”. The resulting citywide resilience plan to address the effects of climate change was incorporated into Asheville’s 2018 comprehensive plan.
Steps to Resilience Training
The Steps to Resilience training walks you through the five steps of the framework, introduces the data, tools, and services to support you, and connects you with others in the national resilience ecosystem. Experienced trainers come to you so you and your team navigate the framework on-site in your city and work across departments to develop solutions. The Steps to Resilience is a valuable investment of collaboration and time to build long-term climate resilience for your community.
Partnership for Resilience and Planning (PREP)
Working with the Southeast Sustainability Directors Network and the University of Arkansas, NEMAC helped develop a program that provided education on community resilience planning, promoted network collaboration through workshops, and developed an online Community Resilience Planning Handbook for communities across the Southeast.
