Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

University of Notre Dame

Notre Dame, Ind.



Notre Dame is an independent, national Catholic research university offering undergraduate and graduate degree programs. The university’s Global Adaptation Index program is using this grant to design and produce the first U.S. Urban Adaptation Index for climate resilience, which will enable cities to measure their vulnerability to climate change, gauge their readiness to improve climate resilience and prioritize their public and private investments to achieve a more efficient response to climate challenges, especially for low-income city dwellers.
