Response Requested: EPA Seeks Your Support to Develop a Community Resilience Tool Around Climate Change and Extreme Events

Sep 30, 2020 | Anu Varma

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is planning a set of invite-only “small group” virtual workshops with the goal of developing a community resilience assessment/planning tool. The first set of workshops will explore the context of resilience planning, challenges, and needs. Participants will be able to share their experiences and learn from others who are dealing with similar issues and challenges. The insights gained from these workshops will be used to develop key features and functionalities of the tool.

The agency seeks local health department (LHD) participation to broadly share how LHD programs: (1) are doing resilience planning; (2) have used resilience tools in the past; and (3) have incorporated health equity and vulnerability into past planning efforts.

Participants should have some experience in resilience planning at the local level, are expected to attend one of the two workshops on October 16 or 19, and must be prepared to commit approximately three hours to the workshop. Participants will not be asked to put in any additional work or preparation before, during, or after the workshop.

If you are interested in participating, please respond to Amy Chang (achang@naccho.org) by no later than Friday, October 2 at 5 PM ET. Due to the high volume of anticipated responses and limited seating at the workshop, NACCHO will be accommodating requests on a first-come first-serve basis.
