Social change ecosystem mapping identifies strengths and assets of alliances or organizations within non-profit or community-driven sectors that can be engaged in the planning, development, and implementation of successful roadmaps, policy priorities or climate action plans. The purpose of mapping is to identify potential anchor organizations with the expertise, track record, and capacity to support cities in assessing equity impacts, setting equity goals, and helping to design roadmaps with triple-win solutions.
