Who We Are
The Resiliency Partnership is a collaboration of public and private partners to leverage funding, personnel, and projects to support efforts that integrate hazard mitigation, floodplain management, and coastal and climate resiliency.
Why We're Here
The damages and impacts resulting from natural hazards present a substantial threat to communities, infrastructure, cultural and natural resources throughout Maryland and will only be exacerbated by a changing climate. Of the top five natural hazards that occur in Maryland (floods, coastal hazards, winter storms, wind and thunderstorms); flooding is the most prevalent whether it be riverine or tidal.
Resiliency Partnership members support and encourage activities throughout the state that improve water quality and reduce flood risk in day-to-day decision making, as well as long-term strategic planning. The MRP recognizes that ensuring protection of life, property, and natural resources for future generations requires adequate preparedness in the present.
