"The Resilience and Adaptation in New England (RAINE) database is a collection of vulnerability, resilience and adaptation reports, plans and webpages at the state, regional and community level."
The US EPA has developed a program designed to help communities in New England improve disaster mitigation and overall resiliency ahead of anticipated impacts from climate change. Resilience and Adaptation in New England (RAINE) is actually a searchable, sortable database of a variety of resources ranging from reports, plans and websites at the local, regional and state level. RAINE provides a logical bridge between the traditional comprehensive emergency management cycle and the relatively new Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) approach now being promoted by FEMA, which is heavily influenced on more established environmental climate adaptation approaches by proposing more holistic and sustainable solutions.
In order to fully understand the connections between traditional emergency management and those that utilize NBS, it may be helpful first to review the glossary of terms the EPA prepared.
