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.

 

New Release! Community-Driven Planning Framework

This workshop series, hosted by the National Association of Climate Resilience Planners, builds facilitative leadership capacity among facilitators, organizers, leaders, and educators from (and accountable to) Black, Brown, Indigenous, Asian, and Pacific Islander communities.

 

We are so excited to be partnering and collaborating again with Facilitating Power and People’s Climate Innovation Center to curate and co-facilitate timely, relevant content with featured communities practicing community-driven planning along with quarterly peer cyphers to build our growing community of practice.

SAVE THE DATE: Registration for the next series opens on October 16, 2023 and the first workshop will take place on November 30, 2023!

This 9-month virtual program supports participants with facilitation skill development, peer support and project mentorship, and applied practice of community-driven resilience planning anywhere in the U.S. and U.S. Territories. This program is intended to support participants with facilitation skill development, peer support and project mentorship, and applied practice of community-driven resilience planning.

People’s Climate Innovation Center and Facilitating Power are collaborating again to co-host this second series of the certification program and will make final selections for the 2024 cohort on Wednesday, November 15, 2023. The cost of participation is on a sliding scale and scholarships are available on a case-by-case basis.

COMMUNITY-DRIVEN RESILIENCE PLANNING

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.

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.
