Equity and Climate Synergies Consultation of Growth Management and Land Use
This webinar will review and develop additional equity and climate considerations related to growth management and land use decisions. What are the climate and equity implications associated with our present growth management process, who benefits and who is harmed by present processes and in what way? Who is in most need of the outcomes resulting from growth management and land use planning? What opportunities are there to incorporate equity and climate synergies into our growth management processes and decisions? This is an ongoing series bringing brilliant brains together to crowdsource equity and climate synergies. The Equity and Climate Resource Hub is accessible here.
Climate Governance, Accountability, and Implementation CAC Series – City of Toronto
This webinar is part of the Climate Governance, Accountability, and Implementation CAC Series, where we will learn about different structures of climate governance and ways for municipalities to be answerable and transparent about the actions required to mitigate and adapt to climate change effectively. We will feature municipal presentations sharing their experience thus far in several webinars, followed by an in-person workshop to explore which structures can be transferable within other jurisdictions’ contexts and what other ways can support the more progressive implementation of climate actions.
In this second webinar of the series, Ash Michael from the City of Toronto will share about the recently adopted Carbon Accountability Governance system, which outlines the set-up of emission budgets, the reporting structure, the timeframe, and assigns responsibility. Additionally, Toronto has implemented a climate lens into its budget process. Ash will walk us through Toronto’s new one-stop internal website that provides various resources to support staff in increasing their climate knowledge and capacity, including conducting a greenhouse gas (GHG) impact assessment and/or a climate risk assessment.
