Equitable Planning

Planning is one way to ensure that equity is centered in how cities are deploying green infrastructure solutions. This section includes examples of city, county, regional, and community-driven plans that address equity in making decisions about green infrastructure solutions to climate threats. Truly equitable approaches will be developed through diverse and inclusive planning processes; this section also highlights how planners are engaging with communities in the design and development of plans. Community-driven plans can ensure that residents have power in determining how green infrastructure solutions are deployed in their neighborhoods. This section also includes tools to help planners consider socioeconomic and other risk factors when developing plans and identifying potential neighborhoods for green infrastructure investments.
