Nonprofit Partnering For Natural Disasters And Community-Based Climate Resilience

Climate change may feel a long way off, but the Upper Valley is already experiencing more frequent and intense rainfall, snow, hurricanes, high winds, flooding, power outages, and impassable roads and bridges. For busy nonprofit leaders, it’s hard to make time to plan, especially if the risks are unknown and seem far off. But recent natural disasters have made us realize that it’s not just about whether our agency gets flooded. By building plans and relationships in advance, our agencies and our communities will be ready to make the best decisions when crisis comes.
