Introduction to Resilience: 3 - Identifying Resilience Solutions  

Education Type: 
Live Online
1 hour
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM (ET)

Sponsored by: 

DOE Federal Energy Management Program - FEMP

This training builds on the previous "Intro to Resilience: 1 - Key Concepts" and "Intro to Resilience: 2 - Hazard and Vulnerability Assessments" trainings by helping connect stakeholders to resilience solutions based on their hazard exposure and vulnerability. It describes different types of resilience solutions - institutional, operational, and technological - to help attendees understand what is meant by "holistic" resilience planning. Examples of different resilience solutions will be provided, ranging from smaller projects to larger projects. The training also includes a discussion on climate resilience solutions, including nature-based solutions and climate adaptation and mitigation solutions.
