Optimizing Ecosystem Service Provisioning through Tree Planting Strategies that account for Community Health and Demographics
April 14, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Increasing relevance of ecosystem services in decision-making requires interdisciplinary efforts that are grounded in community needs. The City of Cincinnati has over 300,000 residents and would like to implement tree planting to promote resilience. To ensure resilience goals are pursued in an equitable and socially just manner, the City of Cincinnati engaged in an interdisciplinary partnership where planners, foresters, GIS specialists and environmental justice scholars determined neighborhoods to prioritize for tree planting based on need for flood prevention, heat mitigation, and air purification. The assessment accounted for access, susceptibility, and equity patterns, and integrated tree canopy, demographic, health, and risk data to assess community need.
