Launching GCC's Equitable
Adaptation Legal & Policy Toolkit

Wednesday, July 29, 2020
1 PM ET / 10 AM PT


Please join the Georgetown Climate Center on Wednesday, July 29, 2020, for a webinar launching GCC’s new Equitable Adaptation Legal & Policy Toolkit, an online resource for community-based organizations and state and local governments working to develop and implement equitable adaptation solutions.

The effects of climate change disproportionately burden low-income communities and communities of color, who already face significant economic, social, and environmental challenges. The cumulative impacts of pollution, racism, and political and economic disenfranchisement make it difficult for these communities to withstand and recover from extreme heat, flooding, and other climate impacts. The Equitable Adaptation Legal & Policy Toolkit explores best emerging practices, legal and policy tools, and case studies to help state and local governments work with communities to develop and implement climate adaptation solutions that achieve beneficial outcomes for all.

The Equitable Adaptation Legal & Policy Toolkit was co-created by GCC staff and a panel of advisors, and was informed by the insights and expertise of a network of local, state, and federal adaptation practitioners; community-based organization leaders; and other partners.

The full Equitable Adaptation Legal & Policy Toolkit will be available on July 29.

GCC would like to thank the Kresge Foundation and the other generous funders who support GCC's work for making this project possible.
