2023 – Clean Air Partnership
The Clean Air Partnership’s latest briefing note provides an overview of equity in municipal climate action and examples of how Canadian municipalities are incorporating equity in their climate plans and actions.
Climate change impacts, such as extreme heat and cold events, and flooding, are felt unevenly across our communities. Marginalized communities and individuals that face deeprooted and systemic challenges are at the forefront of climate impacts. Meanwhile, those who are more privileged have access to more resources, greater influence in decision-making, and a higher capacity to protect themselves from these impacts. As the urgency of addressing climate change increases, so does the need for addressing equity challenges.
