Informal settlements in areas that are already disaster prone are an increasing problem. Climate adaptation is also often used as an excuse fo evictions to redevelop sites in a more climate-proof manner in what is often referred to as ‘climate gentrification. Nature-based solutions to climate change, such as increasing green spaces, may increase home values, but the question of who benefits from these initiatives arises. How can the side effects of climate interventions that can lead to inequality, such as increase in value, be avoided? This webinar will address transparency and accountability in these processes. It will explore the alignment of policy processes with climate adaptation plans that can easily create conflict, looking at inclusivity and equity in processes and in outcomes.
