Resilience Implementation Strategy Kick-Off

Montpelier, VT – The State of Vermont is hosting two virtual events on April 22 and 25, 2024, to launch the development of a Resilience Implementation Strategy. The strategy will help prepare Vermont for the effects of climate change and climate-related disasters. Vermonters are invited to join these events to help shape the vision for a climate-resilient Vermont.

Over the past year, Vermont has endured significant effects of climate change. Floods, heat waves, and droughts are a few of the climate challenges faced by Vermonters. The Resilience Implementation Strategy is an effort by the State of Vermont to assess existing work to make Vermont more climate-resilient, and prioritize strategies to help Vermonters feel more prepared in their daily life to anticipate, withstand, and recover from the harmful impacts of climate change.

The Strategy will integrate and build on the significant work already done by the State. This includes the Climate Action Plan, the State Hazard Mitigation Plan, the Vermont Agency of Transportation Resilience Improvement Plan, and more. The State aims to complete the Strategy by July 1, 2025.

Secretary Julie Moore of the Agency of Natural Resources, Treasurer Mike Pieciak, and the Climate Action Office will share why a Resilience Implementation Strategy is needed, and what it will accomplish. A facilitated discussion will gather your ideas and input that will help craft a vision for a climate-resilient Vermont.
