Climate change is playing a bigger role in determining where and how we live and is limiting access to and availability of affordable healthy housing, healthy food choices, transportation choices, and social networks, which is forcing the displacement of individuals and communities. Displacement—whether temporary or permanent, forced or voluntary—is an issue rooted in inequity and exacerbated by climate change. This webinar will share the results of EcoAdapt’s State of Adaptation Program report for Strong, Prosperous, and Resilient Communities Challenge on if and how people working to address displacement pressures are considering the effects of climate change, including examples and case studies of climate-informed anti-displacement efforts from Partnership for Southern Equity and Bay Area Regional Health Inequities Initiative.

Speakers:

Rachel Gregg, EcoAdapt

Kathryn Braddock, EcoAdapt

Kirsten Cook, Partnership for Southern Equity

Will Dominie, Bay Area Health Inequities Initiative

Marissa Ramirez, Natural Resources Defense Council
