Share

While most projects are still small, the local government market for climate resilience and adaptation services is evolving rapidly. Larger consulting projects can exceed $500,000, and hundreds of millions are going to food protection projects in vulnerable regions, especially New York. Active frms typically report fve to 10 FTEs engaged in U.S. climate resilience work. Changing analyses of food risks and risk-based valuations of coastal property are expected to drive new investment.
