Resilience Planning for Washington D.C. Universities

The District of Columbia Mayor’s College and University Sustainability Pledge, signed in 2012, is a cross sector agreement between the District higher education sector and local government to advance sustainability. The District Department of Energy and Environment (DOEE) urban sustainability staff, along with Sustainability Directors from partner universities, invited Second Nature to help organize a one-day workshop on climate resilience. The goal was to increase higher ed. institutions’ understanding of District resilience planning initiatives, and provide a framework for colleges and universities to undertake their own resilience assessment and planning processes on campus.
