The Resilient MA Action Team (RMAT) is an inter-agency steering committee responsible for implementation, monitoring, and maintenance of the State Hazard Mitigation and Climate Adaptation Plan (SHMCAP).
The State Hazard Mitigation and Climate Adaptation Plan is an innovative and comprehensive approach to combining the traditional Hazard Vulnerability Analysis employed in Hazard Mitigation Plans by Emergency Management professionals with the impacts that climate change and detailed in Climate Adaptation Plans will likely be delivering to communities in Massachusetts, both coastal and inland. While not exclusively focused on flooding, rising waters will play a significant role in many of the scenarios.
This initial post will just be an introduction on the SHMCAP and over time, we can investigate different aspects of the plan and highlight important elements.
