Communities, governments, and businesses around the world face unprecedented challenges from environmental degradation, climate change, rapid urbanization, and a host of other megatrends. In particular, climate change is exacerbating the frequency and severity of natural hazards, including flood, wildfire, drought, and heat island impacts.
