Abstract

Local, regional, state and national planning and implementation efforts could better use equity approaches that benefit the diverse needs of low-income and the most vulnerable communities. While we plan for the National Adaptation Forum and other forums, how do we better include equity perspectives, strategies and leaders to further advance the climate adaptation field? What are some of the strategies and practices that city planners, CBO’s, funders and others are doing to build a more diverse and equitable climate adaptation field?
