This is an emergency!
Jurisdictions and organizations throughout California and the nation are adopting resolutions declaring a climate emergency. However, these jurisdictions do not have viable, ready strategies to address the crisis. Most jurisdictions, if they have a climate action plan, have long-term strategies with limited ability to offer true crisis-oriented responses in a short-to mid-term timeframe.
TRIAGE : “the assignment of degrees of urgency to wounds or illnesses to decide the order of treatment of a large number of patients or casualties.”
Local governments and businesses need assistance and focus to help build on this crisis and translate it into real change - that means finding the right steps to get from today's business as usual to systemic
change. The RAPID Climate Action Network will work together to provide a path to feasible action, leveraging this momentum, providing a sense of purpose and impact to practitioners and local governments, while enabling the development of the long-term systemic changes that must also be enacted.
