This week, FEMA released updates for its Climate Risk and Resilience Portal (ClimRR). The portal offers free data to infrastructure operators, city planners, and other stakeholders seeking to understand the risks facing their communities from natural hazards like flooding, wildfires, droughts, extreme heat, and more through the end of the century.

ClimRR provides easy access to climate data to integrate future conditions into hazard mitigation plans and infrastructure design, among other uses. The climate projections offered by ClimRR can be combined and overlayed with the existing Resilience Analysis and Planning Tool (RAPT). Combining data from ClimRR and RAPT allows users to understand local-scale climate risks in the context of existing community demographics and infrastructure, including the location of vulnerable populations and critical infrastructure. The updated portal lets users visualize and analyze future climate hazards combined with local demographic and infrastructure data. Enhanced features include new consolidated local reports assessing future climate hazards and community impacts; new maps, charts, and visualizations; and improved educational features to interpret climate hazard data points. Access the Climate Risk and Resilience Portal here.

For additional guidance, register now for a ClimRR webinar: Webinars are open to everyone, and real-time captioning is available.
