Social Equity Considerations for Cities’ Decision Making Related to Inner, Nearby, and Faraway Forests
This Learning Guide is divided into three parts:
Part 1 is meant to provide the background and rationale for social equity considerations. It covers:
- Social equity concepts and key relevant terms for the purpose of this guide
- Approaches to enhance social equity that can inform city policies and plans
- Information on key issues related to the impacts of social equity
- Other benefits and considerations of adopting a social equity approach
Part 2 delves into some overarching social equity considerations, and Part 3 into social equity considerations specific to each forest level.
Apart from a description of social equity issues, most slides also include case-studies and a ‘Resources’ section that links to tools, guidance, and research on how these issues can be addressed.
