Advancing an Inclusive and Just U.S. Climate Resilience Strategy


Back to top

President Joe Biden and Congress have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to address environmental injustice, economic inequality, and climate change while preparing communities for the stresses and shocks of increasingly frequent, catastrophic extreme weather.

As Congress negotiates an investment package to support President Biden’s Build Back Better plan, this virtual event will explore how the U.S. should move forward with a climate resilience strategy that places racial, economic, and environmental justice at its core and meets the scale of the challenge.

The event will bring together leadership from the Biden-Harris administration and leaders from across the resilience, environmental justice, and climate policy communities to address the administration’s whole-of-government approach to driving forward equitable resilience through agency-level actions, investments, planning, and prioritization.

The virtual event is hosted by Duke University, the Resilience Roadmap, Resilience21, The CLEO Institute, and the Center for American Progress.
