As cities around the world lead on climate action, recognition is growing that success often hinges on whether policies designed to address climate change also promote equity. As the City of Regina pursues its goal of becoming 100 percent renewable by 2050, Emily Eaton and Simon Enoch consider what other cities have done to successfully incorporate equity concerns into municipal climate policy. By understanding the best climate equity practices of other municipalities, we can ensure an equitable made-in-Regina climate action plan that leaves no one behind.
