Santa Monica Mountains Climate Vulnerability Survey 

Residents and people over the age of 18 who work in the following communities: Agoura Hills, Calabasas, Hidden Hills, Malibu City, Unincorporated Malibu, Pacific Palisades, Topanga, Westlake Village are invited to participate in the Malibu Foundation’s Santa Monica Mountains climate vulnerability survey.

The results of this survey will be used for the purposes of creating a “Community-Based Climate Vulnerability Assessment and Resilience Plan” for the region. The project is a collaboration between the Malibu Foundation, the Resource Conservation District, Climate Resolve, the Los Angeles Emergency Preparedness Foundation, LA County, and local universities to prepare a community-based climate vulnerability assessment and resilience plan for the region, with a special focus on extreme heat and fire, and an emphasis on the most vulnerable residents—including seniors. 

The goal is to provide a gap analysis of the community’s capacity to respond to the shocks and stressors of climate change, and produce an actionable report with mitigation and adaptation recommendations for the greater community and local municipalities to consider.

The survey contains up to 67 questions in the following categories: demographics; climate change and the Woolsey Fire; extreme heat; wildfire; floods; communications and mobility; mitigation, sustainability and preparedness.

The survey takes approximately 20-40 minutes to complete and the process is completely anonymous. To protect confidentiality, the survey does not contain information that will personally identify participants. The deadline to participate is March 15.

For questions or more information, contact principal investigator and project director Shea Cunningham (Shea@TheMalibuFoundation.org
