Spotlights

What is Resilience?

Climate resilience is about bouncing forward, rather than "bouncing back" to the status quo. It is about eradicating inequities and unsustainable resource use. True resilience addresses the root causes of the climate crisis while advancing the social and economic transformation of communities.

 

Climate resilience requires a holistic view of the challenges we face, calling for solutions at the intersection of people, the environment, and the economy. A people-centered approach to resilience encompasses not just mitigation and adaptation, but also the following elements: human rights and democracy, economy, and ecology.

Community-Driven Resilience Planning

This framework:

  • Advocates deepening democratic practices at the local and regional levels

  • Puts forth principles and practices defining the emergent field of climate resilience

  • Offers examples and resources for community-based institutions implementing community-driven planning processes

  • Is useful for a range of stakeholders, including community-based organizations, philanthropy, and the public sector.

The opportunity for increasing community resilience is in the very process of developing a plan when those who are most impacted are at the heart of society’s efforts to build a resilient future.

Vision Power Solutions series

Launched in April 2021, the 12-month series provides an overview of the framework of community-driven planning featuring national leaders disrupting top-down methods and uplifting the voices and values of Black, Brown, and Indigenous communities.

 

Designed in collaboration with the NAACP, Facilitating Power, Climate Innovation at Movement Strategy Center, and the National Association of Climate Resilience Planners (NACRP), the series focuses on community vision to name priorities addressing justice issues, with solutions based on community needs and experience, in order to build power - making lasting political, cultural, and economic change. 

 

About

The National Association of Climate Resilience Planners (NACRP) is a multi-stakeholder, peer-learning, resource, and referral network that fosters effective, place-based climate resilience planning and implementation.
