Inequality, Housing and Climate Change
In partnership with the Climate Group and FINTECH.TV, The Nest Summit is an official event of Climate Week NYC, dedicated to advancing sustainability in the US by convening the organizations, visionary researchers, and influential policymakers driving climate action and leading the way to a cleaner and safer environment.
Climate change exacerbates inequalities for low-income families in developing countries and in industrialized, wealthy ones as the Mother transcends all borders, languages, religions, and regional environmental issues. The underprivileged are of particular importance when planning, experts say, due to the nature of how countries, economies, and communities develop, integrate, and evolve with complementary aspects of humanity. One way to reduce the immediate and long-term impact of a disaster on low-income renters is to ensure that the rental properties they live in (affordable housing) can remain functional throughout the disaster and bounce back to normal operations quickly afterward. Lisa Davis from PGIM Real Estate discusses with Jeffery Gitterman at the Nest Summit.
