Climate Resilience Certificate student Jessica Hench was selected to present at FEMA’s first student showcase as part of their Resilient Nation Partnership Network on April 28, 2021. Her presentation, Utilizing Community-Driven Engagement Practices to Establish a Toolkit of Equitable Adaptation to Inform the Greater Portland Regional Approach To Municipal Climate Action Planning, was selected through a competitive process.

Hench was one of four graduate-level students to present their current work and research focused on the following areas: promoting natural hazard mitigation actions, advancing equitable resilience initiatives, expanding capacity through partnerships.

The Resilient Nation Partnership Network (RNPN) is a unique network of organizations and individuals united to help communities take action and become more resilient. The mission of the RNPN is to inform, educate, and motivate communities to protect themselves from the loss of life, property, and prosperity as a result of natural hazards.

Hench works for the Greater Portland Council of Governments and has been coordinating Maine communities participating in Antioch’s Center for Climate Preparedness and Community Resilience’s 2021 Local Solutions Facilitated Community of Practice, which just concluded.
