Developed by the REPI Office, this REPI resilience primer provides information on how the REPI program can be used to implement natural infrastructure solutions to help military installations and ranges and surrounding communities adapt to climate change. This primer includes a background on how climate change is affecting the Department of Defense, how installations and partners can develop REPI resilience projects, and examples of successful resilience projects.
REPI helps fund cost-sharing partnerships among the Military Departments, private conservation groups, and state and local governments to protect compatible land use and preserving natural habitat on non-DoD lands. This primer is intended as an introduction for land trusts, state or local governments, and other potential partners. Military installation personnel who are unfamiliar with REPI may also find it useful.
