This section focuses specifically on the impact of climate change on Planet Earth.
The interconnectedness between all things nature can not be denied. Climate change affects all. To emphasize this point the American Red Cross issued an official statement (https://www.redcross.org/about-us/news-and-events/press-release/2019/red-cross-statement-on-climate-change.htm). Then in December 2022, ARC released its first Environmental, Social and Governance Report. https://www.redcross.org/about-us/news-and-events/news/2022/red-cross-releases-environmental-social-and-governance-report.html.
At our own State level, ReBuild NC is an effort of the North Carolina Office of Recovery and Resiliency (NCORR). ReBuild NC partners with local governments, state agencies and community organizations to improve resiliency in:
- Social and financial systems that drive prosperity
- Human-made and nature-based infrastructure
- Ecosystems and natural habitats that provide critical services and assets
- Health and well-being of North Carolinians statewide
ReBuild NC also created the Resilient Communities Program. The Resilient Communities Program works to build a stronger North Carolina, where communities, economies and ecosystems rebound, adapt and thrive amid changing conditions and challenges, including disasters and climate change.
