Racial equity can be defined as "the condition that would be achieved if one's race identity no longer influenced how one fares." (from "Awake to Woke to Work: Building a Race Equity Culture" by Equity in the Center). This collection focuses on racial equity and also includes works that explore the larger diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) framework. Our aim is to raise awareness about funding for racial equity efforts as well as activities in the social sector meant to realize racial equity. The collection is part of Candid's Funding for racial equity special issue website.

Assessing Climate Risk in Marginalized Communities

March 14, 2024

This report builds upon a growing body of research exploring the implications of climate change for communities of color. Using a focused analysis of riverine flood risk, our findings illustrate how communities of color are disproportionately affected by riverine flooding events and how the impact is magnified because of these communities' greater vulnerability and weaker resilience. Based on our methodology and conclusions, we recommend several steps that can support more racially equitable outcomes from a riverine flood event, including the Federal Emergency Management Agency's adoption of a more inclusive definition and forward-looking assessment approach for riverine flooding risk, normalization of the expected annual loss attributable to a climate event by scaling the total replacement value, and incorporation of social vulnerability and community resilience measures into composite risk metrics. More broadly, we recommend that continued attention be paid to racial equity within overarching environmental, social, and governance frameworks.
