Mapping Resilience: A Blueprint for Thriving in the Face of Climate Disaster

There is a need to better characterize and promote the notion of community resilience as part of broader adaptation strategies toward a vision that is deeply rooted in climate justice and equity. Various sectors are already implementing climate adaptation programs, but these efforts are often siloed and focus on protecting natural resources or built infrastructure.

Our climate is changing and it’s harming the health of people in communities across America. The good news is that many communities are stepping up to the challenge and responding in ways that protect and improve everyone’s chance for a healthy future. We aim to keep you up to date on the health impacts of climate change, but our primary goal is to illuminate how communities across America are developing innovative ways to mitigate and adapt to climate change while improving health and advancing health equity.

Climate Change Is Harming Our Health

Position: Coordinator, Resilience Project & OMEGA

The National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) has been promoting sustainable living for over 40 years. Established in 1976, we are a national nonprofit that helps people by championing small-scale, local, and sustainable solutions to reduce poverty, promote healthy communities, and protect natural resources. NCAT was originally created during the oil crisis of the 1970s to develop inexpensive energy-saving strategies for low-income communities.

Scorched: Extreme Heat and Real Estate

Scorched: Extreme Heat and Real Estate outlines how extreme heat will affect the real estate and land use sectors and highlights the leadership and the potential positive impact of the real estate sector in implementing “heat-resilient” building designs and land uses. The report provides an overview of extreme heat’s connections to the built environment and an in-depth discussion of heat mitigation and adaptation strategies related to building design, building materials, green infrastructure and public space design.

OUR MISSION: To apply human ingenuity to the preservation of species, populations, and ecosystems using scientific principles, innovative approaches, and lasting partnerships with conservation practitioners.

Conservation Science Partners is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit collective established to meet the analytical and research needs of diverse stakeholders in conservation projects. We connect the best minds in conservation science to solve problems in a way that’s comprehensive, flexible, and service-oriented.

Communicating climate change: A practitioner’s guide

The guide is full of tips for communicating climate change effectively, drawn from CDKN’s experience in South Asia and Southeast Asia, sub-Saharan Africa, and Latin America and the Caribbean. It is by practitioners and for practitioners. If you have ever tried to explain to colleagues in your organisation, policy-makers, or the broader public how the climate is changing, how it affects them, and what they can do about it, then this guide is for you. Whether you are in government, business, civil society or academia, when we refer to ‘climate communicators’, we mean you!

Just offshore of Northern California lies an underwater national park called the Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary. The Sanctuary is cared for and protected by NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The Greater Farallones Association supports the efforts of NOAA and the Sanctuary with citizen science programs, restoring critical habitat, addressing climate change, education for kids, and funding for noted researchers.
