PCEF Climate Investment Plan review panels

News Article
Frontline communities are disproportionately affected by climate change, which is why we need their expertise and unique perspectives in this work. 

The application for the CIP draft review panels is closed.

The review panels will convene for Round 3 and Round 4 of the CIP process.

It’s important for the PCEF Committee to hear community input before recommending the plan to City Council. PCEF is forming two community review panels for rounds 3 and 4 of the CIP process:  

  • Frontline communities panel
  • Youth panel

Based on information from the accessibility survey, we designed these two tracks to provide intentional space to support individuals to participate fully in discussions.

How are these different than the roundtables?

Review panel participants provide high-level feedback on the draft plans based on PCEF’s guiding principles, while roundtable participants provided subject-matter feedback on specific funding area topics. Feedback gathered from these panels is essential in guiding equitable outcomes in the CIP. 

Participant rosters

The application closed on March 2, and community review panel participants have been selected. See the frontline community panel and youth panel rosters:
