Resilient Communities Project (RCP), University of Minnesota
This project was completed as part of a year-long partnership between the City of Rosemount and the University of Minnesota’s Resilient Communities Project (http://www.rcp.umn.edu). As more extreme weather incidents have ravaged the United States in recent years, many local governments are taking a closer look at just how resilient their communities are to the changing global climate. The goal of this project was to create a climate adaptation plan aimed at strengthening resilience to climatic impacts on built, natural, economic, and social systems. In collaboration with city project lead Jason Lindahl, a planner for the City of Rosemount, a team of students in PA 5242: Environmental Planning, Policy, and Decision-Making analyzed data from the Minnesota Department of Health’s Vulnerability Assessment and case studies of two different regions in the United States and made recommendations for how the City of Rosemount can use a vulnerability assessment to inform activities that improve the City’s adaptability in the face of climate change. A final report and presentation from the project are available.
Report and presentation completed by students enrolled in PA 5242: Environmental Planning, Policy, and DM, taught by Carissa Schively Slotterback in spring 2015.
