As hard as it is to admit, but the reality is, the world keeps on changing day by day, and no one can stop that. The bad news is, there are a lot of things that is currently going on in the world that can put communities at risks. Hence, the United States administration decided to create a climate resilience toolkit.
The toolkit is a website which was developed by the NOAA and federal agencies. This enables decision makers to boost climate resilience with the use of information, expertise in subject matter, and date driven tools. This also offers information across federal governments by only using just one location that is easy to use.
With that in mind, you know that this will help Americans in understanding more about the opportunities and risks that is related to climate which make a big impact to the communities. Making them take the necessary steps that will improve resilience. This is what the administration is aiming for.
Not every leader in the country has access to the technical and scientific information of the Federal government. Every leader needs this as this will help them in their decision making. Climate is one of the enemy of man as this is one of the things that will determine their faith in this world, and a great leader equipped with knowledge will be able to lead his or her community to a great life.
Incorporated in this toolkit are scientific data that is science based, climate relevant, and has data driven tools. With that in mind, you know that such tool will make sure that all communities are equipped with actionable information, which will help them in the preparation for the impact of change.
On November 17, 2014, tribal, local, and state leaders from all over the country were given demonstration on how this website should be used. This is inline with the resilience and preparedness program. The main goal for this would be to help the communities deal with extreme weather, especially the impacts of climate change.
The task force was really the one who requested for this. They requested that the federal government should provide a useful and actionable information tool that will assist all communities when it comes to planning for the future conditions. Because of their request, they were able to provide to help leaders all around the nation come up with a great solution.
Today, just as promised by the government, the website did evolve in something more. The phases it has evolved into something that readily and effectively addresses the issues in various sectors within communities throughout the county. This was only able to provide a few helpful things to leaders before.
Right now, this has evolved greatly. It now has topics about food resilience and risk to coastal flood, and addresses to areas like ecosystems, water, health, and even transportation. Its functions and collection will indeed connect the citizens to the federal data which is readily available with just a few clicks, creating a better future to everybody.
