Development of a climate resilience screening index (CRSI): an assessment of resilience to acute meteorological events and selected natural hazards

Source(s):  United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

This is a synthesis report detailing research in the development and demonstration of the Climate Resilience Screening Index (CRSI) approach at both the national and regional scales using county data in the US. The report also includes an extensive analysis of the conceptual framework along with methods for metric, indicator and domain calculation. 

The CRSI has been developed as an endpoint for characterizing county and community resilience outcomes that are based on risk profiles and responsive to changes in governance, societal, built and natural system characteristics. The CRSI framework serves as a conceptual roadmap showing how acute climate events impact resilience after factoring in the county and community characteristics. By evaluating the factors that influence vulnerability and recoverability, an estimation of resilience can quantify how changes in these characteristics will impact resilience given specific hazard profiles. Ultimately, this knowledge will help communities identify potential areas to target for increasing resilience to acute climate events.
