Climate Justice: Making Progress on Equitable Climate Adaptation - From Data to Policy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This training session will introduce participants to tools and best practices for using adaptation planning and policy to address social inequity and disproportionate risks. Participants will learn how to use two new web-based tools – 1) the Populations at Risk tool, which provides detailed census data in free, print-ready reports that identify people facing disproportionate climate impacts, and 2) a forthcoming Social Justice and Equity Portal, which will bring together examples and guidelines on how to address adaptation and equity goals. Participants will also learn about community-driven adaptation planning in Detroit, and best practices for building social justice and equity as identified by other leading U.S. cities. Finally, participants will have the opportunity to share lessons, see how existing tools can support their work, and troubleshoot any current projects aiming to address equity through climate adaptation.
