This program is hosted by our partner, Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP), who has extended an invitation to PNY members.
Every week, the Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) reports on numerous floods, fires and other climate-related disasters around the world. Not only are disasters increasing, but it is also clear that climate change is a major contributing factor. Equally evident is how climate change will continue to have disproportionate impacts on communities that have historically been marginalized or underserved. Philanthropy can work together to address these inequities. UN Secretary-General António Guterres said, “Climate change is happening now and to all of us. No country or community is immune. And, as is always the case, the poor and vulnerable are the first to suffer and the worst hit.”
This webinar will help grantmakers and donors understand climate change and domestic and global efforts to address, mitigate and prepare for its impacts through a climate justice lens.
- How funders can help address climate change issues by building a more robust philanthropic response steeped in principles of climate justice
