As Sea Levels Rise in the Southeast, Are Transportation Planners on Board with Climate Justice?
MetadataShow full item record
This report contains a review of transportation-related equity planning practice in the southeastern United States, specifically in metro coastal areas expected to be transformed by sea-level rise. Long-range transportation plans and a sampling of other related documents are examined for an explanation of equity-oriented analytical processes; for mentions of climate change; and for any explicit links between the concepts. The intent is to better understand whether ﾖ more than 10 years after the devastation caused by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita and the worldwide attention it brought to the regionﾒs infrastructure and social structure alike ﾖ our evolving ideals of equity have begun to manifest in planning practice and potential investments.
