This training session will showcase how agencies are implementing climate considerations in resilience planning efforts. It will focus on how climate adaptation and mitigation are integrated within resilience plans, including installation energy and water plans, project prioritization and execution to produce more resilient agencies and organizations. Subject matter experts will also show how compatible, climate considerate energy and water resilience solutions are identified at installations by providing examples of transformational resilience programs and projects.
