As climate change continues to affect regions around the world, cities are beginning to engage in sustainability planning to mitigate potential disasters. However, social equity is often an afterthought when these plans are implemented. A new book, Planning Sustainable Cities and Regions, notes that the work California is doing to blend the “three Es” — environment, economy and equity — could act as a model for cities moving forward across the globe. Join us for a conversation with the book’s author.
