Summary

Communities can participate in climate adaptation, understand its dynamics, and benefit from public and private sector investment in resilience. If the value of resilience investment is felt every day in new jobs, economic assets, and waterfront awareness, the community will be more likely to sustain the on-going commitment that climate adaptation demands. A palette of local procurement and labor force strategies helps project partners and potential funders think constructively about the best way to integrate jobs and economic resilience benefits into the physical design of flood protection.
