Oakland

Oakland’s Resilience Journey

Oakland has a population of just over 400,000, and is home to Northern California’s busiest port.

The city is best known for its groundbreaking community partnerships. The Pacific Institute and Bay Localize have developed hazard mapping and outreach tools for community residents. Oakland has carried out multiple studies on impacts and vulnerability related to sea level rise and flooding, and an initial analysis of seismic hazards in soft-story housing.

The Oakland Climate Action Coalition, a network of around 40 local groups, led by and for low-income communities of color, has been an active and important partner in the city’s community-based climate resilience planning.

Oakland aims to foster this unprecedented community involvement to increase resilience and social and economic equality.
