Climate Resilience

As communities strive to build resilience in the face of a changing climate, Dudek helps clients plan, adapt, and recover with an equity-focused lens.  Climate resilience may take various approaches, but it always requires assessing risks and vulnerabilities, measuring readiness and adaptive capacity, and quantifying potential impacts to address how climate change will create new, or alter current, climate-related risks.
