Transportation Access, Climate, Economic Security (ACES)

The Community Social Planning Council has been actively engaging with regional and international partners on just transitions. Within this initiative we have launched the Transportation ACES project to design a regionally focused climate equity framework for transportation decision making. We are interested in using this framework to maximize co-benefits in program planning decisions that lead to the best climate, accessibility and affordability outcomes.

If you are interested in participating in this project please contact Mikaila Montgomery at research@communitycouncil.ca

Project Summary:

The Community Social Planning Council will work to create a framework and set of metrics for climate-friendly transportation equity decision making processes. Working with local experts and drawing from existing research, the CSPC will gather data sets and metrics to identify priorities and design a regionally focused climate equity framework for transportation. Existing climate and equity programs will be surveyed and potential program options will be explored. A decision making model will be designed to test our co-benefits assumptions using the climate and equity framework. Feasibility and affordability will be prioritized. The outcomes and program suggestions will be further tested for impact through an online survey and a public engagement event in Saanich.
