Climate change impacts are changing conditions in communities worldwide, increasing incentives to live and work in some locations, and decreasing incentives in others causing ripple effects across global, national, and local markets. As people of all demographic groups gravitate toward locales with comparatively lower risk to climate impacts (receiving communities) they will drive economic growth and development. Local governments of these receiving communities and private interests will be challenged to ensure such growth and development is inclusive and equitable and minimizes gentrification-driven displacement.
Join ULI for a timely and informative webinar on climate gentrification, the phenomenon characterized by real estate investment and spiking prices in areas with lesser risk to climate change.
This webinar, based on a report published by ULI by the same title, aims to provide foundational knowledge on this emerging issue, highlight some effective equitable development strategies and solutions employed by local governments, community-based organizations, developers, and others across the real estate sector, and outline key concepts and takeaways from the report.
Attendees will walk away with a deeper understanding of the factors contributing to observed national trends and potential risks to communities, private sector stakeholders, and public officials in addition to existing remedies and pathways to implementation.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn from experts and join the conversation on climate gentrification.
