Climate Resilience Planning in Lane County, Oregon

Lane County, Oregon is located on the western side of Oregon and stretches from the Three Sisters mountains to the Pacific Ocean. It is home to a diverse population in both rural and urban settings. In mid-2020 Beyond Toxics and NAACP Eugene/Springfield established a Climate Equity and Resilience Task Force comprised of community representatives and stakeholders who live and work with diverse and underrepresented communities in Lane County. The role of this Task Force is to ensure that the actions developed by the County in their Climate Action Plan are equitable. 

Our team produced a Climate Trends Primer and helped Beyond Toxics develop a Vulnerability Assessment report, important steps to developing equitable and effective climate actions. We also helped facilitate a 2-session virtual vulnerability assessment workshop attended by community members, county staff, and other stakeholders.
