The Indiana University Environmental Resilience Institute presented a report to Monroe County Commissioners about this area's climate resilience.
The Hoosier Resilience Index is a survey to help local governments understand how prepared they are for the impacts of climate change. The main impacts are increases in extreme heat and extreme precipitation. The most vulnerable populations, including low-income and minority residents, will be the first to feel the impacts, according to researchers Andrea Webster and Zach Richardson.
Watch the presentation at the commissioners' March 24 working session here. A written report is forthcoming.
A draft of the City of Bloomington's Climate Action Plan has been released. It will be reviewed by the Bloomington Council's Climate Action & Resilience Committee at their Nov. 17 meeting.
The city hired paleBLUEdot as a consultant to help develop the plan. It lists goals in these eight categories: 1) transportation and land use, 2) energy and built environment, 3) waste management, 4) water and wastewater, 5) local food and agriculture, 6) health and safety, 7) greenspace and ecosystem health, and 8) climate economy.
The city is also asking for feedback on the draft plan. Click here to take a survey.
