Climate Change and Health, Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion PlaybookAdaptation planning for Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

 

The Climate Change and Health Playbook: Adaptation Planning for Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion is designed to support the work of state, local, territorial and tribal health services across the nation in embedding justice, equity, diversity and inclusion into their climate and resilience initiatives, programs and operations.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Building Resilience Against Climate Effects, or BRACE, framework was created to aid jurisdictions in navigating the health adaptation process. The playbook is a supplement to BRACE to amplify the incorporation of justice, equity, diversity and inclusion, or JEDI.

This playbook is divided into three parts:

  1. BRACE and JEDI 101
  2. Adapting to Climate Change to Protect Health
  3. JEDI and BRACE in Action

Explore the playbook parts to learn how to advance equity and justice in climate and health adaptation process.

The Climate Change and Health Playbook: Adaptation Planning for Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion was authored by APHA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Environmental Health/Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry.
