Welcome to Resilient First Coast

What Does Resilience Mean?

Resilience is the ability to adapt and thrive in the face of acute shocks and chronic stresses brought about by climate change and related threats.

These threats include:

  1. Sea level rise
  2. Increased storm frequency
  3. Flooding
  4. Extreme heat
  5. Other natural hazards

These can impact natural systems, the built environment, health and wellness, and economic factors. Adaptations may include both nature-based and hardened infrastructure, safer housing, workforce training, and much more.

What is Resilient First Coast?
