CED Climate Adaptability

Join CCEDA for the second series of regional training sessions on Climate Adaptation Strategies for Low to Moderate Income (LMI) Communities. Using a community economic development (CED) lens, we will examine adaptive strategies to address climate change in California’s disinvested neighborhoods. The effect of climate change is a “threat multiplier” that exacerbates other issues low wealth communities continue to face, such as housing, transportation, health, food insecurity and public safety. CED practitioners and leaders in the climate industry will come together to foster new collaborations for equitable climate solutions at the community level. We will strengthen the link between climate change and CED by addressing opportunities for community investment, workforce development, financing strategies, policy advocacy and leadership.
