Equitable Climate Adaptation

Webinar: How to prioritize diversity, equity, and inclusion while advancing climate action

November 8, 2022 | 1:00 to 2:00 pm ET |  Online  

In this webinar, we reviewed takeaways from the 2022 Livable Cities Forum and explored practical next steps to incorporate equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) into climate action. We shared a new resource developed specifically to help local governments integrate EDI into climate adaptation planning and implementation.

Heliya Babazadeh-Oleghi from the City of Mississauga talked about challenges with equitable climate action, Julius Lindsay (he/him) from Black Environmentalist Alliance presented approaches to integrating equity into climate adaptation, and Ewa Jackson of ICLEI Canada walked participants through the new Equitable Climate Adaptation: Considerations for Local Governments on Integrating Equity and Climate Adaptation resource and how to use it. Participants also had the opportunity to ask questions and share their own learnings in a conversation moderated by Rena Viehbeck from ICLEI Canada.
