Our faculty-student team will help local officials in Southwest Central Indiana complete the Hoosier Resilience Index Readiness Assessment. The assessment helps local governments to evaluate their preparedness for climate risks and identify and prioritize ways to increase readiness. Collecting and disseminating this data will inform communities about emerging threats and identify priorities for coordinated regional or state-level policy solutions. It will also deepen ties between IU and local communities, and serve as a concrete example of a policy-relevant partnership consistent with CRE’s core mission. In addition to these near-term benefits, the project is designed as a proof-of-concept for a larger regional or national data collection effort.
