    This is a great resource for those working to build a more climate resilient community. They provide great case studies, several local stories (on extreme events or successes), a small list of tools, some educational materials on climate, and finally a nice list of events and RFPs. I think the site is well organized and you can get to the information of interest to you pretty quickly.
