Make All Infrastructure Resilient – Strong, resilient infrastructure, such as roads, dams, and electric grids, can help communities quickly recover from natural disasters. However, vulnerable infrastructure can result in devastating impacts on communities.

It is essential that infrastructure, from roads to dams to electric grids, are resilient to climate changes and natural disasters. As Congress considers new spending on infrastructure, enduring resilience should be an essential component of all projects, so new infrastructure is built to withstand changing climate conditions many decades in the future.
