Resources from The Long and the Short of It: A New Model to Strengthen the Region

Publication date: 
March, 2018

In a March 15th program, we hosted a discussion with Resilient by Design Bay Area Challenge about the role the philanthropy community can play in strengthening our region’s resilience to the effects of climate change, while addressing urgent regional concerns related to displacement, income inequality and more. 

We learned about innovative solutions to mitigate the impacts of climate change on vulnerable communities in the Bay Area; explored the intersections between protecting communities from flooding, fire risks, and other climate change-related risks, and promoting equitable community economic development, displacement prevention, affordable housing, and vibrant open spaces; explored opportunities for public-private partnerships in building a resilient Bay Area, and where philanthropy can have the greatest impact; and discussed ways to promote equitable planning and design practices that empower and engage vulnerable or marginalized communities, within this new innovative model.
