The Energy Democracy Scorecard and Flipbook

January 2020

According to the Energy Democracy Scorecard and Flipbook from the Emerald Cities Collaborative, “Energy Democracy” is defined as an ideal scenario where a frontline community “shifts completely away from an extractive economy, energy, and governance system to one that is regenerative, provides reparations, transforms the power structures, and creates new governance and ownership practices. ” The Energy Democracy Flipbook is designed to help frontline communities, such as low-income people of color, who are vulnerable to climate change to self-evaluate their communities’ energy economy condition.

Tribal Climate & Health Adaptation Webinar Series

December 2019

The Tribal Climate Health Project hosted a series of 10 live, national webinars on Tribal Climate and Health Adaptation (TC&HA) between August to December 2019. These webinars provided training and guidance for tribal-serving health and environmental professionals on the intersection of climate change and tribal health. The trainings included steps, tools, case studies, and other resources on topics including the different climate-related impacts on tribal communities, how to perform vulnerability assessments, and how to form, implement and evaluate adaptation strategies and plans. There were several interactive components of this training, as participants were encouraged each week to discuss related readings, provide their own experiences and findings, and participate in polls, surveys, and other forms of feedback along the entire 10 week training.

Our Power Puerto Rico: Moving Toward a Just Recovery

2019

The Climate Justice Alliance (CJA) Our Power Puerto Rico report demonstrates how the "Just Recovery" model can be utilized to help the island recover from Hurricane Maria of 2017, which devastated Puerto Rico’s agriculture and rural farms. Just Recovery is a model centered on frontline communities' ability to respond, recover and rebuild from climate accelerated disasters. The model is created through the accumulation of hands-on cases conducted by Climate Justice Alliance which is an organization with 67 urban and rural frontline communities, organizations and supporting networks. The goal is to lay the groundwork necessary to activate community participation in both immediate emergency responses and long-term rebuilds. It also emphasizes that the process must be led by those who have been treated unequally in everyday life - the queer, trans, working-class, folks of color, disabled, immigrants, and/or femmes on the frontlines. By doing so allows frontline communities to build their own power, agency and self-determination while achieving climate adaptation. The report also includes a list of practical steps for conducting the Just Recovery model.
