University of Arizona’s (UA) Udall Center for the Studies in Public Policy, Watershed Management Group (WMG), and Sonoran Institute proposed a two-year seed grant in January 2017 to increase resilience to climate change and build capacity and social capital. Central to long-term and sustainable success of such a project was moving from after-the-fact involvement of communities to a central role for community organizations in decision-making processes and guidance during planning, building, and maintaining greenspace.
