Equitable Resilience Builder
December 13, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
EPA’s Equitable Resilience Builder (ERB) is a scientific tool developed using human-centered design and engages community members in resilience planning to generate solutions that advance equity. The tool contains activities for listening to local voices (trauma-informed engagement strategies, storytelling, participatory mapping) and conducting collaborative assessment of hazards, resilience and equity, to build community connections and identify actions to strengthen resilience in ways that address the needs of those made vulnerable by social and environmental inequalities. This presentation will provide an overview of the ERB application and walk through examples of community building and engagement techniques that center equity in resilience planning.
