Green infrastructure (GI) plays a critical role supporting livable, resilient, and sustainable cities. Yet, the distribution of GI in cities is not always equitable and the absence of GI in low-income, underserved communities serves to put already stressed communities at even greater risk.

To better address equity and justice issues around GI, our project seeks to engage communities on Tucson’s south side. We aim to help bring about transformative change by harnessing and building from community interest, NGO study and action, city commitment, and university facilitation.
