In episode 128 of America Adapts, Doug Parsons hosts Dr. Carolyn Kousky, the Executive Director at the Wharton Risk Management and Decision Processes Center at the University of Pennsylvania. Carolyn has developed 8 recommendations for the incoming Biden administration to prioritize climate adaptation. We go through each of the recommendations, which cover topics ranging from disaster preparedness, strengthening our infrastructure to utilizing nature based approaches to adaptation. The recommendations are a timely and important contribution as President Biden begins his efforts to mitigate AND adapt to climate change.

8 Recommendations for Climate Resilience:

  1. Provide just disaster mitigation and assistance.
  2. Make recovery easier.
  3. Improve the financial resilience of households, small businesses, and communities.
  4. Annually fund actions to lower our risk.
  5. Rebuild for the future, not the past.
  6. Strengthen our infrastructure.
  7. Harness nature for risk reduction.
  8. Pay for resilience investments by fighting climate change and inequality.
