Evaluating Community Readiness for Resilience Investment

The Environmental Finance Center worked with two Maryland communities—the cities of Annapolis and Salisbury— to evaluate their readiness to invest in climate resilience and to develop guidance to help communities lay the groundwork for effective resilience funding.  The project included conducting a crosswalk of each community's key planning and policy documents, evaluating whether the communities have in place key enabling conditions for resilience investment, and developing self-assessment questions that municipalities may use to determine their readiness to invest in resilience projects and programs.
