Climate Resilience

Changing local average temperature ranges, more frequent and severe weather events, and shifts in other environmental factors create shocks and stresses to the economy, which have an outsized impact on low- and moderate-income (LMI) populations. Climate resilience is the ability of communities and individuals to adapt and thrive in the face of these shocks and stresses.

As part of our commitment to economic stability, the SF Fed studies how the economy adapts, innovates and builds resilience in response to extreme weather and natural disasters. On this page you can find a comprehensive archive of research and related content on resilience, including our efforts to build our understanding of how the economy, people, communities, and businesses are experiencing and adapting to climate-related shocks and stresses.

Help our country reach its full economic potential.
