Driven by the immediate threat posed by climate change, PRP is working on:
To build a critical foundation for this resilience work, PRP has fully funded a study by the University of Rhode Island Coastal Resources Center and RI Sea Grant to review, organize and synthesize decades of data and studies to analyze the impacts and risks of climate change.
PRP is organizing meetings with an ever-growing network of businesses, organizations, and academic institutions from across the world to learn best practices for resilience. PRP is also planning a series of workshops with Providence stakeholders to convert insights from our synthesis report into a resilience plan for all Rhode Islanders.
