Building community resilience with nature-based solutions: A guide for local communities
Building Community Resilience with Nature-based Solutions: A Guide for Local Communities is a new guide developed by FEMA to help communities identify and engage the staff and resources that can play a role in building resilience with nature-based solutions. Whether it’s working across various local government departments or tapping the strengths of non-governmental community partners, planning and building cost-effective nature-based solutions requires collaboration.
The focus of this guide is local communities, but many of the ideas and advice may also apply to state, territorial, and tribal governments. Some local communities may use this guide to learn about nature-based solutions and weigh their value for the community. Others may be ready to move from planning to action. The 30-page guide includes six sections, and users can jump in at any point, depending on their current knowledge base and interests.
