SHEPHERDSTOWN — Four panelists gathered at Shepherd University on Wednesday night to discuss resiliency and how communities across West Virginia can stay strong through economic shifts, climate change and infrastructure demands.

Lauren Johnson, senior analyst at the Environmental Defense Fund, led the panel by showing off the new Climate Vulnerability Index, a tool used to show how vulnerable different communities are to a wide variety of issues — from access to supermarkets to quality of housing.
