Climate change impacts disproportionately affect the low-income and communities of color, those with the least resources to prepare, sustain and recover from extreme events. How can municipal and county decision makers and civic leaders support social cohesion, and promote effective engagement with all community members, especially those that are most likely to be impacted? This webinar will cover:
- Tips for promoting effective engagement with community-based organizations and historically marginalized populations
- Useful methods for building equity into resilience and adaptation planning and implementation.
- Taking action: Implementing your plan and monitoring your progress.
