The Georgetown Climate Center recently launched an Adaptation Equity Portal within its Adaptation Clearinghouse to help communities plan for and develop policies that integrate social and environmental justice.
The portal provides more than 200 case studies, plans, tools, and other resources that help communities identify ways to protect the safety and livelihoods of those most affected by climate change.
The portal was launched during a March 30 webinar. This webinar featured examples of on-the-ground efforts to integrate equity into adaptation planning and a demonstration of the Adaptation Equity Portal. It also included a discussion with representatives from the Georgetown Climate Center’s equity advisory group who informed the development of the portal and the recent equity report, and who are supporting equitable adaptation work in their own communities.
