The first round of projects from the Pacific Northwest Resilient Landscapes Initiative has been announced. Five leading organizations – the Land Trust Alliance, Oregon Community Foundation, Seattle Foundation, Idaho Community Foundation and the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation – are leading this initiative. This initiative connects “natural resilience with community resilience, supporting projects that strengthen access to clean water, reduce the risks of flooding and bolster local economic opportunity. It also encourages projects that advance social equity by benefiting communities disproportionately impacted by our changing climate.”
