Build Resilience in Your Community

The NC Resilience Exchange helps local and state leaders in North Carolina understand their community’s climate resilience needs, identify appropriate actions and find the resources to implement solutions. Residents are already experiencing climate impacts such as drought, flooding, high daytime and nighttime temperatures, hurricanes, wildfires and sea level rise. Our ecosystems are changing, too. This site organizes North Carolina’s resilience resources for leaders who want to help manage these impacts. With the support of the NC Resilience Exchange, practitioners can improve the resilience of their communities, natural areas and farmlands.
