Motivating Local Climate Adaptation and Strengthening Resilience: Making Local Data Trusted, Useful, and Used
help reduce the immense human and financial toll of disasters caused by natural
hazards and other large-scale emergencies, the Committee on Applied Research Topics for
Hazard Mitigation and Resilience has been charged with identifying applied research topics,
information, and expertise that can inform action and identify collaborative priorities to advance
natural hazard mitigation and resilience. The committee, which was formed at the request of the
Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) by the Resilient America Program of the
National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, selected two large-scale themes
within which to identify applied research topics. An initial report examined the theme of Social
Capital and Social Connectedness for Resilience.1 A second report, detailed here, considers the
theme of Motivating Local Climate Adaptation and Strengthening Resilience.
