This is the third webinar in the Climate Adaptation Leadership webinar series hosted by the School of Sustainability at Arizona State University in partnership with the American Society of Adaptation Professionals and the University of the District of Columbia’s College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability and Environmental Sciences.
This webinar is about climate justice. The costs of taking climate action and the benefits of resilience-building must be equitably shared. We can use climate action to minimize harm, maximize options, and build power for oppressed and underrepresented people and communities. In this webinar, hear from champions of climate justice who are ensuring that adaptation action creates adaptation equity.
