Description

In Fall 2016, the Climate Justice Working Group (CJWG), including environmental justice, public health, and climate equity leaders, convened to develop recommendations to ensure that the 2017 update of Safeguarding California was responsive to environmental justice and climate equity concerns. Building on these efforts, CJWG developed definitions of key concepts—including climate justice and climate vulnerability—as well as guiding principles and recommendations for California leaders to consider in future development and implementation of climate change adaptation policies and funding decisions. This resource can be used by local and regional governments and planners to incorporate equity and environmental justice into local adaptation planning.
