Climate Vulnerability Assessment (CVA) Survey
For 2021, 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, with a special focus on extreme heat and fire, and an emphasis on the most vulnerableâ€”including seniors.
The goal is to provide a gap analysis of the communityâ€™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 consider.
The Foundation has launched a Climate Vulnerability Assessment (CVA) Survey (themalibufoundation.org) for residents, employers, and workers in the Santa Monica Mountain communities of Agoura, Calabasas, Hidden Hills, Malibu, Pacific Palisades, Topanga, and Westlake Village. The survey contains up to 67 questions in the following categories and takes between 20 to 40 minutes to complete:
â€˘ Climate Change & Woolsey Fire
â€˘ Extreme Heat
â€˘ Communications & Mobility
â€˘ Mitigation Sustainability & Preparedness
The survey will close on Monday March 15, 2021. All responses are anonymous.
Upon completing the survey there is an option to be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a $100 gift certificate to a local restaurant. A total of 10 gift certificates will be raffled off!
