CED Climate Adaptability

Building upon the momentum of continued interest on Climate Adaptability, and its effect on low-wealth communities, CCEDA’s second Continuing Education training sessions will be on CED Climate Adaptability. Climate change will continue to have a threat multiplier effect on low-wealth communities; when turning on the AC may not be an option when it’s 100 degrees outside.

CCEDA will provide CED organizations critical information on developing strategies to prepare for climate adaptation. CCEDA’s goal is to facilitate a discussion between CED organizations and subject experts addressing the impending effects of climate change and the immediate need to prepare strategies to address these challenges in low wealth communities.

More details on this session will follow in the coming months. Stay tuned!
