Leading with Equity for Flooding Resilience and Investments in Water Infrastructure

| |

This session was recorded as part of River Rally 2020 and led by Darryl Haddock (West Atlanta Watershed Alliance) and Jennifer Arnold (Reciprocity Consulting, LLC). Historically marginalized populations suffer disproportionately from the effects of flooding and inadequate investments in water infrastructure. An intentional focus on equity is key to increasing resilience, creating input opportunities for community feedback and targeting future investments to positively impact vulnerable populations. This session shares examples from different urban waters contexts to show how institutionalized racism and other forms of inequity play out and what can be done to address them.
