Guide to Equitable, Community-Driven Climate Preparedness Planning

May 2017

From the Urban Sustainability Directors Network (USDN), this guide is aimed at local government and outlines a framework for designing and implementing a community-driven, equitable climate preparedness planning process. Community-driven planning empowers those experiencing the greatest climate risks to co-define the solutions. Rather than treating equity as a component of climate preparedness planning, this guide suggests that equity should be at the center of any adaptation approach. It outlines why traditional planning falls short of supporting equity, describes why climate change vulnerability is not evenly spread, and identifies how typical adaptation strategies can be reframed to focus on equity. Throughout the document, examples from cities are presented to showcase real-world applications.

Climate Change Adaptation - What Federal Agencies are Doing

February 2012

The Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES, and formerly the Pew Center on Global Climate Change) reviewed federal agency adaptation initiatives in this report in 2010, and released the updated version in February 2012. The intent of the report is to represent where a federal department or agency has implemented institutional mechanisms specifically for climate change adaptation, developed an agency-wide adaptation plan or set of policies, or provides adaptation resources or tools.
