The San Diego Foundation has awarded $364,000 in grants to six nonprofit programs, including the Climate Science Alliance that will help increase equity and strengthen regional resilience as it relates to diminishing water supplies due to the impacts of climate change. This support comes from the partnership of the San Diego Foundation Climate Initiative and the S.D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation, with the mission to engage local stakeholders at the intersections between water, climate, agriculture, equity, land use, and housing.

The grant, Climate and Water Resilience for Natural and Human Communities, will support the Climate Science Alliance’s work with local Native American Tribes to build capacity and knowledge within the Tribal Work Group, as well as advance resilience planning and strategies in a region often vulnerable to heat, drought and flash flooding. The grant will also support Climate Science Alliance’s Climate Kids Program, which offers youth education on climate change through immersive science activities, storytelling and art.

The Climate Science Alliance is grateful for the partnership and support of the San Diego Foundation and looks forward to working together to advance climate resilient strategies in our region and beyond. Read the full press release here.
