Community-Driven Climate Resilience Planning is a vital opportunity for cities to reorganize resources, foster meaningful relationships, and develop placed-based innovations that support all people to thrive despite climate disruption. The following framework advocates deepening democratic practices at the local and regional levels and seeks to put forth the principles and practices defining this emergent field, and to outline resources for community-based institutions implementing community-driven planning processes. We consider this a “living framework” as this is a relatively new field of practice, and expect that the framework
will be refined and expand as the field evolves.
This framework has been developed by community-based organizations to help similar organizations meaningfully engage vulnerable and impacted communities in defining and building climate resilience. We hope it will also be useful to philanthropic institutions that are developing funding strategies to tackle climate change, and to public sector officials charged with protecting our cities from the unpredictability of climate disruption.
