New NOAA Climate Guides Available

NOAA and its partners just released Implementing the Steps to Resilience: A Practitioner’s Guide,  a free, practical  guide to help communities and local governments incorporate climate risk and equity into their decision-making processes as they work on local climate resilience issues.
