Partnerships

Officials and planners around the world are preparing for oncoming climate change, and we want to help. The NED team aims to help climate adaptation planners incorporate disability into their efforts at every level possible. This could include anything from drafting disability sections into planning documents to directly connecting disability and climate adaptation stakeholders at different geographies from cities to entire nations. We are also interested in topics ranging from long-term infrastructure planning to disaster readiness and response (DRR) and other emergency efforts.

We often participate in government planning initiatives, such as the upcoming National Climate Assessment and also, State-level activities in our home state of California. We are excited to partner with other entities, be it through direct consultation or as a part of an official proceeding. For more information, please contact Alex Ghenis at alex@wid.org.
