New White Paper: Planning Tools for Climate Change Resiliency

Posted by Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission on June 9, 2020

Planning and preparing for the impacts of climate change can be complicated, confusing, and time consuming. DVRPC’s Office of Environmental Planning recently completed an assessment of planning tools for climate change resiliency. This white paper reviews, organizes, and prioritizes over 60 tools for the Greater Philadelphia region and describes fundamental concepts related to climate resiliency planning. The result is a toolkit of 18 tools that are useful at any stage in the resiliency planning process, and can be used for communities throughout the DVRPC region to develop their own climate resiliency planning pathway.

Although this paper was written through the perspective of climate change, the impacts of COVID-19 highlight that using planning tools to build up community resiliency is more important than ever. Explore the white paper here.
