The Equitably Resilient City

This book project presents a framework for simultaneously making cities more equitable and more resilient to environmental hazards.  Our model of the equitably resilient city includes four key components focused on improving conditions for urban poor residents: 1) improved environmental safety and vitality; 2) enhanced access to livelihoods; 3) increased self-governance; and 4) strengthened security, both from displacement and from violence. 

The project, to be co-authored with Prof. Zach Lamb from UC Berkeley, involves cases drawn from every continent, and has engaged several DUSP SB, MCP, and PhD students who have been helping to identify and research the most promising examples.
