Danielle Arigoni for Climate Resilience for an Aging Nation

November 15, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free

About the Book: Climate Resilience for an Aging Nation argues that climate resilience planning must be evaluated and implemented using a lens of aging. There is a role for all sectors (housing, transportation, health care and elder care, emergency management, and more) in implementing strategies that reduce risk for the growing share of older adults in our communities and enhance resilience for all.

About the Author: Danielle Arigoni (M.R.P. ’97) is an urban planner and community resilience expert.  She currently serves as Managing Director for Policy and Solutions at the National Housing Trust, providing strategic direction for the organization’s sustainability and resilience policy efforts and oversight and guidance for NHT’s state and local advisory services.

Marion McFadden served as Senior Vice President for Public Policy and Senior Advisor for Resilience at Enterprise Community Partners. She led affordable housing policy development, research and advocacy at the federal, state, and local levels. She led nationwide work to create healthy, green affordable housing and to support resilience planning and programs in communities impacted by flooding, hurricanes, earthquakes, wildfires, and extreme heat. Additionally, she served as the Executive Sponsor for Enterprise’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council, quadrupling the number of dedicated DEI staff and contractors, planning an organizational equity assessment, and supporting the formation of seven employee resource groups.

Previously, McFadden oversaw affordable housing and community development programs, including the Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG), the HOME Investment Partnerships Program, the Housing Trust Fund, the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) and CDBG Disaster Recovery funds. In this role, she formed and facilitated multiple public-private partnerships, including the award-winning Rebuild by Design initiative and the National Disaster Resilience Competition.
