Equitable Adaptation Training

Materials and Resources

Hosted by the BayCAN Equity Work Group, this training was developed and offered on June 25, 2020. The curriculum was designed to help BayCAN members advance their adaptation work through key frameworks and tools for equitable project design, planning and implementation.

Participants left with a deeper understanding of the core frameworks for community-driven adaptation planning as well as how to utilize a host of tools to aid them in the process including:

  • Analyzing and measuring for equity

  • Navigating community vulnerability mapping tools

  • Building equitable leadership structures

  • Engaging and partnering with community organizations
