Community Climate SWOT Step 3: Analyze and Prioritize – 25 points

Amy April 7, 2021

Consider your table. Prioritize or weigh your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats depending on whatever criteria your analysis team determines are most important. Possibly you want to focus on job growth or reducing air pollution, for example. Then optimize your strengths and opportunities and minimize your weaknesses and threats. Develop your goals and put together your strategic plan. This is an ongoing process. From the National Climate Assessment:

Iterative Risk Management: 

“The process of anticipating and responding to climate change does not constitute a single set of judgements at any point in time; rather, it is an ongoing cycle of assessment, action, reassessment, learning and response.”

“The process helps manage risks that are well known, as well as those that are deeply uncertain due to data limitations or the irreducible unpredictability of some aspects of current and future climate.”
