Resource Summary

Resilient Rhody is the state of Rhode Island’s first climate adaptation strategy which addresses the impacts of climate change to the state’s critical infrastructure and utilities, natural systems (upland and coastal), emergency preparedness, and community health and resilience. Strategic actions are  outlined for these four thematic areas, and an additional chapter highlights financing mechanisms for these recommendations.  An “action plan to stand up to climate change” was required by Governor Raimondo’s 2017 Executive Order 17-10. The Order appointed a Chief Resilience Officer to manage climate resilience efforts across the state, and develop a climate resilience action strategy to be submitted to the Governor by July 1, 2018.
