CARAT Info Sessions

CARAT Information Session

The North American Food Systems Network has released CARAT as a free, open-access resource. 

The Community & Agriculture Resilience Audit Tool (CARAT) helps community stakeholders assess how they currently utilize the assets of their local food system to achieve a substantial level of community resilience.

CARAT measures the resources within a food system via 101 indicators to determine possible next steps to increase community resiliency and food sovereignty.

These indicators revolve around seven core themes that address the complex nature of community resiliency. Each requires the attention and participation of a diverse team of community stakeholders who work together to provide a holistic perspective of how food systems play an integral role in their community’s resilience. 

To learn more, please consider attending one of our CARAT Informational Sessions on Dec 4 or Dec 18.
