Neighborhood Detox: Enhancing Resilience in a Hazard Vulnerable Area
MetadataShow full item record
Enhancing resilience in physically vulnerable areas and amongst socially vulnerable populations is most effective with participation from the local community. Engaging population groups who are often left out of the design/planning process and can thereby be untrusting of authorities can be a challenge. This design incorporates an approach that transforms numerous hydrological risks into citizen driven methodologies for data collection and design decision making. The engagement process specifically works to enhance knowledge of risks and methods for collecting data on these risks through education, awareness, and feedback loops that support climate justice design and planning in the Manchester neighborhood of Houston, Texas, USA.
