BLOXHUB MORNINGS // SUSTAINABILITY, LIVABILITY AND RESILIENCE The intersection of sustainability, livability and resilience!
In a world increasingly affected by climate change, natural disasters, poor land-use and lack of housing, we bring to discussion the topic of sustainability, livability and resilience. These terms have sometimes been used interchangeably, though at the cost of weakening these concepts. If a livable future that is resilient to disruptions is the desired outcome, is sustainability a lens to get there? Where is the intersection of these concepts? And how are they reflected in urban planning practices and climate action plans.
DAC and IFHP will debate this topic and talk about planning practices, policies, and the need for cities to take a value-driven approach in combining sustainability, resilience and livability in infrastructure development, urban planning and climate policy.
