Communities worldwide recognize the urgent need to adapt to climate change, reduce the risks of extreme weather, mitigate against environmental degradation, and minimize threats to public health and safety. Our Resilience Practice expands across CSRS' services–from engineering to landscape architecture to infrastructure program management, urban planning, and policy development–and harnesses the latest technology to identify a community's resilience challenges and deliver solutions. We use an inclusive planning process that identifies shared values and priorities while honoring the unique attributes of people and places. We combine our experience in project and program delivery with risk assessment, planning and grants management to help our clients achieve resilience.
We design for resilience at every scale, from small development projects to multi-billion-dollar federal programs. At CSRS, we encourage big ideas and provide solutions to our clients' most pressing challenges.
