Providence is the focus of a PREP pilot community, with a focus on catalyzing business and civic engagement in, and leadership for, resilience efforts for this coastal urban city and state capital. Activities to leverage leadership, vision, and knowledge to inform long-term climate resilience planning and action include:
- Documenting Providence’s current and future vulnerability
- Building the Providence Resilience Partnership, a consortium of leaders to serve as a long-term foundation for community partnerships towards resilience
- Creating a collaborative resilience action plan to provide the consortium and community with practical, science-based steps toward building resilience to the impacts of strong storms or sea level rise into the fabric of the City.
