You’re not alone trying to adapt and reverse the impacts of climate change. We get it. At DHS, there is urgency to better understand why some communities recover more quickly and effectively to today’s storms. Societal impacts such as readiness, understanding risk, and having a trusted network to rely on, can make or break a community during a disaster, including a flood, wildfire or widespread power failure. DHS is mobilizing multi-agency research teams to combat the climate crisis and build resilience capacity. Learn how government research dollars are working for you by leveraging new scientific materials and technologies and working directly with leaders on the ground to define problems, mobilize the private sector, and transfer solutions to save lives and protect our way of life.
