“How can we implement climate-resilient prefabricated housing?”

More and more prefabricated housing will need to get built so climate migrants can get shelter. However, to make sure that they can stay well during further climate impacts, governments and developers will need to look into Climate Resilient Prefabricated Housing. These designs can range from elevated housing to insulate from floods to homes made out of fireproof materials to protect against wildfires.

“Why is flood resilience policy advocacy so important?”

Flood resilience policy dictates how people will be affected by flooding disasters. However, the structure on which it’s built may not be equitable. For example, bad flood resilience policy may not give renters access to flood insurance, or it might not compensate victims fairly and relocate them to a bad place. To counter this, advocacy will need to be done to ensure that system change occurs and everyone can get what they need. This is why Flood Resilience Policy Advocacy is so important.

“How can we ensure walkability during heat waves?”

Walkability is an important part for many cities. However, during heat waves this can be put under strain since people are not able to go outside. To protect against this, urban planners can devise tactics such as placing free water stations at strategic points, creating underground cooled passageways, and building water spray areas to keep people cool. This is how we can go do Ensuring Walkability During Heat Waves.
