Climate change planning & action in the #CapitalofCapital : evaluating Miami’s capacity for climate justice
This Masters Report analyzes the goals and objectives of the network of climate plans for the City of Miami. These plans are contextualized within the city’s current economic, political, and social reality. Current events including real estate development, city branding, economic growth, and gentrification are contrasted with the plan analysis to develop a broad understanding of the factors influencing commitments to climate resilience. Using a justice framework, the report takes these factors and evaluates the city’s capacity for equitable climate resilience. This method of analysis recognizes how culture, capital, and power influence commitments to equity and reflect capacity for climate justice.
