Addressing Climate Risk through Equitable Community Development

July 21, 2021 @ 12:00 pm 1:30 pm PDT

Ocean Meets Land

Climate change poses substantial risks to our economy, our financial system, and our communities. Low- and moderate-income (LMI) communities and communities of color are disproportionately vulnerable to more frequent and severe climate shocks and stresses such as fires, floods, droughts, and extreme heat. Join the San Francisco Fed on July 21 for a virtual event on climate risk in the western United States. Participants will learn about the broad financial and economic impacts of climate change and explore how the community development field can take action to advance equitable climate adaptation and resilience. Our program is designed to educate and inspire nonprofits, community groups, banks, CDFIs, foundations, state and local government, and business leaders.
