DATA

Resilient RRBC relied heavily on publicly available datasets to understand environmental and infrastructure conditions in the region, to conduct the flood impact assessment and climate hazards assessment, and for other technical analyses to develop the Action Plan. The Data Dictionary included in the Excel file below provides a list of datasets that were used by Resilient RRBC along with several that were developed through the project and are available for your use. The table provides descriptions for each dataset and indicates whether the data are available from a public online portal (and provides the link) or through the download links below. The description and data source columns of the table clarify whether the dataset was something used or developed by the project team.
