The role of government in climate resiliency

Four no-regrets steps that government can take to anticipate and mitigate climate risks, both physical and economic.

Physical climate risks affecting government-operated facilities can disrupt the continuation of critical services and place government infrastructure and employees, as well as citizens, in jeopardy.

Government-operated facilities located in the Gulf of Mexico, southwestern US, and northeast US-Canadian border regions face significant climate risks. Understanding the risks faced at these facilities and developing resiliency plans can help protect critical infrastructure and operations, strengthening the US’ security and economy. However, traditional methods often fall short in providing a comprehensive understanding of these risks and effective strategies for enhancing resiliency due to the uncertainty and complexity of the challenges.


Government organizations can take action to address climate risks by assessing physical risks, strengthening resilience through adaptation measures, protecting the public and contributing to a sustainable and resilient future for their communities. Taking an integrated approach to climate risk assessment can help organizations create targeted interventions that protect vital government services amid the threat of increasing climate change.

Data-driven approaches to assess climate risk and improve resiliency at government-operated facilities are key to building a stronger and more secure US. By adopting the proposed solution and recommendations, government organizations can effectively safeguard their infrastructure, enhance community resilience, and adapt to the challenges posed by climate change.
