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.

 

 

Launching this September 2022, our latest 4 part quarterly series expands on the framework of community-driven planning addressing justice issues, with solutions based on community needs and experience, in order to build power - making lasting political, cultural, and economic change.  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.

NACRP FACILITATOR CREDENTIAL PROGRAM

People’s Climate Innovation Center and Facilitating Power are launching a new 9-month Facilitators Training and Certification cohort beginning February 2023 for NACRP members and VISION | POWER | SOLUTIONS alumni actively engaged in community-driven planning who want to become part of a facilitators referral network. The vision for this certification program is to see hundreds of trained and supported community-based facilitators across the country asserting community-driven climate planning as the norm, shifting away from a top-down paradigm of local planning.

Application for the NACRP Facilitators Certification is now open through November 17. Slots are limited to 25 participants. 

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.
