In June 2021, the Community Engagement (CE) team began developing the following framework for engaging communities throughout our work toward a resilient, low-carbon future. The team met over several months to research and establish a strategic plan for helping our governmental partners meaningfully engage with frontline communities.
While the framework isn’t exhaustive, we aim to cover the core, current climate issues impacting frontline communities. From the beginning, we sought and received extensive feedback from partners and collaborators on the ground in frontline communities.
