Urban Heat Resilience

This briefing paper explores how communities are advancing solutions and implanting changes to address the inequitable distribution of the risks associated with urban heat. Different sections discuss how cities are integrating inclusivity and equity in heat planning, bringing the voices of the most vulnerable communities to the decision-making process, and shaping heat-response to meet the unique needs of the most at-risk residents.
