Southeast Navigator Network

The Southeast Navigator Network serves four states by creating trusted partners (Navigators) to help Community Disaster Resilience Zones (CDRZ) communities benefit from funding sources, capacity-building opportunities, and technical support to create tangible climate resilience outcomes. The Navigators will form their own support network and foster collaboration between communities and across the four states. A Regional Support Team, led by the Geos Institute, will provide Navigators with information and connection to resilience resources and programs. 

This project also serves a larger role within the climate adaptation field by employing a measurement and evaluation framework to be used by organizations helping CDRZ communities nationwide. EcoAdapt will design this framework and lead the effort to measure progress toward climate resilience goals in CDRZ communities as a result of Navigator assistance. This element of the project will align with NOAA’s Climate Smart Communities Initiative – an effort in which EcoAdapt is also a core team member.
