With the increased impacts of climate change, we can expect to see more extreme disasters due to more extreme hazards and growing vulnerability to those hazards. As with other disasters, historically underserved communities are disproportionately at risk.

As part of broader federal efforts to mitigate and adapt to climatological challenges, FEMA has awarded the Columbia Climate School’s National Center for Disaster Preparedness with a three-year training grant to create a national curriculum on climate resilience with a focus on equity for today’s state, local, tribal, and territorial emergency managers. This grant award is part of FEMA’s larger strategic plan to instill equity as a foundation of emergency management and to lead the whole community in climate resilience.

The trainings are expected to be available starting in the late fall of 2023. They will support communities’ efforts to address their climate risks, hazards, and vulnerabilities; incorporate strategies into their emergency management programs; strategize more effectively with their community leaders; and lead the way in creating more resilient and equitable community responses. We will keep this email community updated as the courses become certified and available.

In addition to trainings on climate resilience and equity, later this year, several instructor-led trainings in a virtual or in-person format will be available for communities on mass care and sheltering and pandemic planning. Below are several trainings in development.
