EDGe$ - Economic Decision Guide Software Tool

January 2018

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) EDGe$ (Economic Decision Guide Software) Tool is a software application for community resilience planning. EDGe$ provides a methodology for evaluating investment decisions for adaptation, resilience and recovery from disruptive events or disasters. The tool is focused on supporting the planning process around the implementation of resilient, economically viable infrastructure in communities. by identifying the cost of investing in  resilience, and the benefits of new community level capital investments.

Agricultural Climate Resiliency and Efficiencies (ACRE) Program for Massachusetts

March 2018

The Agricultural Climate Resiliency & Efficiencies (ACRE) was created as part of the implementation of Governor Baker’s Executive Order 569, which focuses reducing carbon emissions and building a more climate resilient Massachusetts. The program advances that goal - as well as more specific goals identified in the Massachusetts Local Action Food Plan - by providing grants to producers to implement practices that improve their farms’ resiliency. $500,000 in grants have gone to 16 Massachusetts farms to install practices that help mitigate and adapt to climate impacts.

Louisiana Strategic Adaptations for Future Environments (LA SAFE)

2018

The Louisiana Strategic Adaptations for Future Environments (LA SAFE) planning process is aimed at climate adaptation and resilience planning for coastal communities in Louisiana. The strategy supports mitigating risks and increasing resilience to coastal impacts - especially flooding. The LA SAFE initiative was first funded through a HUD long-term disaster recovery grant, for six parishes most impacted by Hurricane Isaac in 2012.  Guided by the state of Louisiana, and a network of regional non-profits focused on coastal restoration and resilience, it is a goal of the LA SAFE program to expand the program statewide in the future.

New England and Northern New York Forest Ecosystem Vulnerability Assessment and Synthesis: A Report from the New England Climate Change Response Framework Project

January 2018

Led by the U. S. Forest Service (USFS)’s Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science, this assessment evaluates the climate change vulnerability of forested ecosystems in the New England region (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, northern New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont). The report summarizes the current state of forests in the region including threats and management trends, describes climate impacts as they would progress under projected future climate scenarios, and relays the results of an extensive vulnerability assessment of the region’s forests.
