An Unfair Share: Exploring the Disproportionate Risks from Climate Change Facing Washington State Communities

Current and future climate risks, stemming from heat waves, floods and droughts pose challenges for all Washington communities. However, the degree to which communities are exposed to climate hazards is not uniform across the state. Similarly, the extent to which communities are vulnerable to or can cope with hazards varies across communities, and even among individuals. The Climate Impacts Group partnered with numerous organizations to produce a report aimed at supporting ongoing discussions at the local and state levels regarding the climate risks facing communities in Washington, with a special emphasis on risks faced by communities of color, indigenous peoples and communities with lower incomes.
