Give Metro Nashville feedback on Climate Adaptation and Resilience Plan

Posted by on Tuesday, October 3, 2023 in featured, GHG.

To prepare Nashville and Davidson County and ensure its citizens’ ability to thrive for years to come, former Nashville Mayor John Cooper’s office, in partnership with Metro Nashville departments and the Mayor’s Sustainability Advisory Committee, have developed a Climate Adaptation and Resilience Plan. The advisory committee was chaired by Vice Chancellor for Administration Eric Kopstain and Vanderbilt Law School lecturer Linda Breggin, and it included several Vanderbilt community members 

This plan is designed to guide Metro’s investments and actions in physical and social infrastructure, while ensuring equitable and transparent climate resilience measures. Focuses include: 

  • Building climate adaptation capacity and resilience 
  • Actions that collectively help the city adjust to actual or expected climate changes 
  • Ensuring that our infrastructure, systems, economy and community can anticipate, cope with and bounce back from expected and unexpected events.

The university community is encouraged to participate in the public feedback period for the draft plan, which is open through Oct. 31
