Smart Policies for a Changing Climate
The report and recommendations of the ASLA Blue Ribbon Panel on Climate Change and Resilience: American Society of Landscape Architects June 2018
Climate change is intensifying the negative impacts of standard development practices and putting people and communities at risk. We need a new paradigm for building and enhancing communities that works in tandem with natural systems and considers the needs of all. To meet that goal, ASLA’s interdisciplinary Blue Ribbon Panel on Climate Change and Resilience identified the following core principles, key planning and design strategies, and public policies that will promote healthy, climate-smart, and resilient communities.
