After having identified problems, your next step in building resiliency is to investigate and evaluate potential solutions. Responding to climate change can involve adaptation, mitigation, or both.
Mitigation is action taken to reduce the severity of climate change, by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Early mitigation will make it easier to adapt to climate change later on.
Consider lessons learned from responses to past climate hazards; think about using new technologies and reusing existing technologies in new ways; consider different types of strategies and different timelines.
Learn about successful strategies and barriers encountered by other communities, regions, and organizations. Involve stakeholders - local residents, business owners, and community leaders - in the process of generating solutions.
