Pathways to Resilience: Transforming Cities in a Changing Climate
this report explores the strategies and policies for climate resiliency in urban areas, with a focus on social equity. The report distills a vision developed through interviews and independent research through the Pathways to Resilience (P2R) Initiative. The vision of climate resilience is grounded in the perspectives of low-income communities and communities of color – and comprised of the following core elements, including:
-human rights and democracy – focusing on advancing equity and social justice, reflecting human rights principles, and addressing historical injustices.
-economy – focusing on mitigation, building local economic infrastructure, and redefining the “good life” and
-ecology – balancing relationships with the natural world.
