Heat, storm, drought, flood, fire

vul

Vulnerability

Population density, coastal population, age structure, urban porosity, infrastructure, poverty

readiness-1

Readiness

Credit score, healthcare, crime, education, public spending, clean energy

How can city officials and use the Resilience Index?

The Resilience Index serves as a dashboard for officials to develop and prioritize policy responses against specific climate risks and societal vulnerabilities. City and local governments can leverage the Resilience Index to:

  • Design optimal climate adaptation strategies
  • Strategically allocate resilience grants from the federal government
  • Reform urban and rural land-use policies
  • Identify relocation sites for public and private facilities
  • Conduct scenario-based exercises to prepare for extreme disruptions

Climate Alpha’s land and property valuation platform can be leveraged to:

  • Establish the climate-adjusted market value of real estate assets to model GDP and tax revenue projections
  • Develop land privatization and “urban wealth fund” management mechanisms
  • Calculate and budget for investment requirements and priorities for resiliency measures
