Webinar: Equitable Resilience Planning Frameworks

December 13 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm UTC+0

In this 6-part series, hosted by the Urban Waters Learning Network, we will highlight a variety of strategies that community-based organizations can use to help their communities anticipate, prepare for and respond to climate risks such as flooding, coastal storms and drought, with a focus on protecting community members who are most vulnerable to climate threats.

At the end of this learning series, participants will:

  • Understand the historical context of climate inequities and be able to initiate local conversations to help residents and stakeholders understand the relationship between historic land use/housing policies and predicted impacts of climate change, in particular with regards to water.
  • Understand and describe how climate change impacts are felt through water: riverine, urban and coastal flooding, drought and water scarcity, water pollution and more, and how restoration initiatives improve community resilience.
  • Identify key practices of community-driven climate resilience and gain tools for organizing community members and communicating local priorities to decision-makers more effectively.

Equitable Resilience Planning Frameworks

December 13 at 10 am PT / 1 pm ET

In this session, we will discuss how to  engage and center the needs of the most vulnerable community members when  developing climate resilience plans.  We will share examples of community-driven plans that advance community priorities, drawing from the experience of members of the National Association of Climate Resilience Planners and the Community-Driven Climate Resilience Planning Framework.
