Climate Receiver Places Project

Project Goal

The goal of the Climate Receiver Places Project is to create a framework for more equitable, climate-resilient urban growth in response to climate change migration. We will use the policy documents that we create to work with communities in climate-resilient geographies to promote and implement climate-resilient urbanism.

The Climate Receiver Places Guide

The Climate Receiver Places Guide will consist of five documents. We’re currently working on the first two, which will be published together in the near future.

  1. Receiving Geography Guide – A document to define receiving geography, specific cities, towns, and regions around these municipalities, and the methodology that got us to these conclusions.
  2. Resilience Overview – A document to define equitable, climate-resilient urbanism principles and how communities can use them to change mindsets, self-assess, plan, and implement.
  3. Toolkit – A document that attaches specific policy, planning, etc. resources to the principles defined in the resilience overview.
  4. Implementation Guide – A practical guide to implementation of the resilience overview and toolkit, and how Place Initiative can fit into this process to make things happen.
  5. Case Studies – A document filled with brief case study descriptions and links to additional case studies, showing what to do or not to do, in terms of overall approach, implementation, specific policies, and more.

What’s Next?

After completing the first several documents, we will collaborate with climate receiver places to begin strengthening the resilient communities of the future.
