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
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.
