The Greenlining Institute works towards a future where communities of color can build wealth, live in healthy places filled with economic opportunity, and are ready to meet the challenges posed by climate change.
We work with communities of color to:
- Understand and analyze the racist barriers to economic opportunity.
- Demand accountability from the public and private sectors to combat injustice.
- Foster consensus-building that produces long-term change and success.
- Bridge research and policy to spearhead innovative strategies at the intersections of racial, economic, and climate equity.
We advance policies that build healthy and climate-resilient communities of color that benefit from the jobs and wealth created by the green economy and our transition from fossil fuels. Our work strengthens communities of color from the inside out so their concerns and demands are prioritized by climate advocates and policymakers at every level of government. Building lasting climate resilience in our communities can only be achieved by focusing on the intersection of climate action, racial justice, and economic equity.
We work alongside communities of color that are on the frontlines of climate change to ensure their concerns and demands are prioritized by climate advocates and policymakers. By centering the needs of those on the frontlines, we will create healthier, thriving communities that embrace a more regenerative, people-centered relationship with our environment.
The Sendai Framework Voluntary Commitments (SFVC) online platform allows stakeholders to inform the public about their work on DRR. The SFVC online platform is a useful toolto know who is doing what and where for the implementation of the Sendai Framework, which could foster potential collaboration among stakeholders. All stakeholders (private sector, civil society organizations, academia, media, local governments, etc.) working on DRR can submit their commitments and report on their progress and deliverables.
