Guide to Equitable, Community-Driven Climate Preparedness Planning
Delivering more equitable outcomes requires a different approach to planning. Many climate preparedness and adaptation guides exist and most acknowledge the importance of equity and public participation; however, few address equity issues by addressing specific adaptation solutions, tactics for inclusive community engagement, or the root causes of inequities in climate risk. This guide from the Urban Sustainability Directors Network addresses these gaps. The purpose of the Guide to Equitable, Community-Driven Climate Preparedness Planning is to provide guidance to local governments in designing and implementing a more inclusive, equitable planning process.
