Green infrastructure and nature-based solutions provide low-emissions urban planning approaches to climate impacts such as flooding, heatwaves and air quality, improved habitat for biodiversity, and benefits for mental and physical health, with the latter becoming even more important during the pandemic.
Access to green space is not always equitable, and without strategic planning these solutions can lead to gentrification and displacement. As interest in nature-based solutions accelerates across Canada, it is essential that we embed equity considerations in their design.
This webinar will explore the intersections between equity, green infrastructure, climate action, and human health and well-being and ways to incorporate equity into climate and community planning.
