Equitable Adaptation: Collaborating for Resilience

 Equitable Adaptation: Collaborating for Resilience

Communication and Engagement Track

The challenging impacts of climate change disproportionately affect those with the least resources to prepare, sustain and recover such as low-income communities and many communities of color. How do municipal and county decision makers and civic leaders support social cohesion, and promote effective engagement with all community members, especially those that are likely to be most impacted?

This session covered:

A basic primer on justice considerations and social cohesion for equitable adaptation
Tips for promoting effective engagement with community-based organizations and historically marginalized populations

Participants left with useful methods for building equity into resilience and adaptation planning and implementation.
