In April 2016, the Georgetown Climate Center, in collaboration with the Urban Sustainability Director’s Network, brought together city, state, and federal officials with environmental justice and social equity organizations for a workshop to discuss ways that cities can promote social equity and environmental justice in their efforts to prepare for climate change. This report summarizes the proceedings, synthesizes comments and reflections of participants, and provides examples of equitable adaptation throughout the US. The report also explores tangible actions city officials and environmental justice leaders can take to encourage community-driven planning and integrate social equity goals with climate adaptation goals.
