The new interagency Climate Mapping for Resilience and Adaptation (CMRA) portal helps state, local, and Tribal governments and leaders understand their exposure to climate-related hazards, now and throughout this century. CMRA integrates decision-relevant information from across the federal government to allow users to explore how people and assets in their community may be affected by climate-related hazards. Specifically, CMRA helps people explore how climate conditions in their location are expected to change over the coming decades. The CMRA Assessment Tool integrates information from federal data sources and initiatives, including the U.S. Climate Resilience, NOAA's 2022 Sea Level Rise Technical Report (Sweet et al., 2022), FEMA's National Initiative to Advance Building Codes, and the Council on Environmental Quality’s Climate and Economic Justice Screening Tool.

CMRA is hosted by NOAA and was published in September 2022 as part of an interagency partnership, working under the auspices of USGCRP and with guidance from the U.S. Federal Geographic Data Committee, which is led by DOI. The project was led by NOAA and DOI with support from DOE, USGS, and NASA.
