Climate resiliency and restoration are vital for mitigating the effects of climate change. As global temperatures continue to rise and extreme weather events become more frequent, it is crucial to build resilient systems that can adapt to these changes.
By restoring ecosystems and enhancing their ability to absorb carbon dioxide, we can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate the impacts of climate change. Resilient communities and infrastructure are better equipped to withstand and recover from the adverse effects of climate-related disasters, ensuring the well-being and safety of populations.

Ways to Take Action
The NC Resilient Communities Program responds to these needs through two distinct agency-led programs: RISE, led by the North Carolina Office of Recovery and Resiliency (NCORR), and the Resilient Coastal Communities Program, led by the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality’s Division of Coastal Management.
