Building resilience: how the urban poor can drive climate adaptation /

by Swalheim, Sarah | Dodman, David.

Publisher: London, U.K. International Institute for Environment and Development 2008Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: Adaptation ? preparing for and coping with climate impacts ? is now a key issue in climate negotiations. This is real progress from a decade ago, when mitigation alone dominated the climate agenda. But adaptation itself needs to move on. The 900 million urban dwellers living in poverty worldwide will likely be among the worst affected by climate change, yet they hardly feature in adaptation policies and practices. These people, most living in the world?s poorer countries, urgently need efficient, cost-effective solutions. Community-based adaption is one.Now widely used in rural areas, CBA allows local people to identify and address adaptation issues, building a lasting legacy of skills and ownership. But for CBA to work in urban areas, adaptation funding needs to reach the grassroots organisations and city governments that will initiate and deliver it.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Urban regeneration, scale and balancing social mix /

by Arthurson, Kathy | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. The Brotherhood of St Laurence 2008; Research & Policy Centre 2008Description: PDF.Other title: Social Inclusion and Place Based The Brotherhood of St.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: 13 June 2008 The social inclusion and place based disadvantage workshop was held on the 13th of June 2008 at the Metropole Conference Centre in Fitzroy, Victoria, under the auspices of the Brotherhood of St Laurence?s Research & Policy Centre and the Victorian Government?s Department of Planning & Community Development. It was hosted by Paul Smyth, facilitated by Allison McClelland, and coordinated by Kristine Philipp. These proceedings are aimed at fostering, informing and stimulating public reflection, discussion, debate, research, and policy initiatives to address one of the central challenges facing contemporary Australian governments, industries and communities. Bibliography : p. 9Summary: Whilst the debate about a socially excluded underclass has been contentious, it has contributed to the stigmatisation of areas in which social housing is concentrated. This affects social housing tenants through increased difficulty in gaining employment due to negative perceptions of particular areas and lack of role models in terms of employment participation and educational achievement. There are also other implications, such as poor quality local services and lowered local amenity. Recent reforms to implement tighter assessment criteria for accessing social housing mean that these issues around concentrations of disadvantaged tenants are likely to increase rather than decrease. These circumstances have prompted renewed interest by urban and social planners and housing policy makers in the idea of 'social mix'.Availability: (1)
