The guide takes a holistic approach by considering how buildings, infrastructure and land use can work together to create resilient communities through a low carbon resiliency (LCR) lens. LCR is the intersection between climate change mitigation and adaption measures that maximize co-benefits to communities. A compilation of existing research, policy examples, and case studies combined with stakeholder interviews provide recommendations on how local governments can rebuild better.
