We are excited to announce the RESILIENT SANTA MONICA MOUNTAINS PROJECT!
Malibu Foundation is collaborating with the Resource Conservation District, Climate Resolve, the Los Angeles Emergency Preparedness Foundation, LA County, and local universities to prepare a community-based climate vulnerability assessment and resilience plan for the region.
This plan will have a special focus on extreme heat and fire, and an emphasis on the most vulnerable — including seniors and day laborers.
The goal of the project is to provide a gap analysis of the community’s capacity to respond to the shocks and stressors of climate change, and produce an actionable report with mitigation and adaptation recommendations for the greater community and local municipalities.
To do this, we need our community’s help!
If you live and/or work in the greater Santa Monica Mountains region (Malibu, Calabasas, Topanga, Pacific Palisades, Agoura Hills, Hidden Hills, or Westlake Village) we ask that you take a moment to complete anonymous Climate Vulnerability Assessment Community (CVA) Survey.
You can expect the survey to take between 20 to 40 minutes to complete and contains up to 67 questions in the following categories:
2. Climate Change & Woolsey Fire
3. Extreme Heat
6. Communications & Mobility
7. Mitigation Sustainability & Preparedness
