Making Equity Real in Climate Adaptation and Community Resilience Policies and Programs: A Guidebook
To operationalize California’s statewide vision of honoring social equity in the climate adaptation planning and decision-making processes, the Greenlining Institute published Making Equity Real in Climate Adaptation and Community Resilience Policies and Programs: A Guidebook. The guidebook provides detailed step-by-step guidelines for policymakers to ensure social equity is embraced and implemented throughout the adaptation processes, from goal setting, to policy implementation, to outcome evaluation. The guide can help policymakers who design policies (bills, executive orders, local measures) and state agencies and local governments who develop grant programs to incorporate social equity and protect frontline communities. Communities and advocates can also examine relevant existing policies and grant programs.
