Institute for Governance and Sustainable Development
This grant will enable the Center for Climate Integrity (CCI), a project of the Institute for Governance & Sustainable Development, to build a website and social-media strategy to bring awareness to the gravity of sea-level rise and its devastating impact on communities. To address climate change adaptation needs and the financing requirements essential to protect these communities, CCI with funding from the Rockefeller Family Fund, has partnered with a team of world-class experts in sea-level rise, engineering, and spatial mapping to assess adaptation costs on a community-by-community basis for the entire coastline of the mainland U.S. This grant advances the Environment Program’s commitment to strengthen the evidence base and develop tools to drive adoption of equitable climate-resilience practices.
