Climate Resilience Consulting's mission is to enable communities, governments and corporations to avoid, prepare for, and resist the global and local impacts of climate change. We help you measure how climate change will affect you, strategize how to adapt, and finance your initiatives, all while ensuring that social equity is fundamental to climate resilience.

Take Our BuzzFeed-Style Quiz to Find Your Adaptation Personality
NAF participants got the chance to put their brains on pause and laugh for a bit as they took a simple 5-question quiz to find out whether their "adaptation personality" is: Green Infrastructure, Resilience Hub, Managed Retreat, Onsite Energy or Sea Barrier. Take the quiz yourself to find out!
Who We Supported Thanks to You!
Conference giveaways usually head straight to the landfill, so instead of a branded pen or stress ball we decided to make donations to 4 nonprofits focused on equity and resilience. Everyone who took our Adaptation Personality Quiz at our NAF booth gets to choose whether a donation would be made to the Anthropocene Alliance, Baltimore Environmental Equity Partnership, Institute for Diversity and Inclusion in Emergency Management, or Living Classrooms. In the end we donated $1,000 to those 4 groups, proving that a simple swap-out at the conference booth can have a huge impact!
