New ULI Report, Housing in America: Integrating Housing, Health, and Resilience, Looks at the Link Between Strengthening Community Resilience and Building Healthy Places

"A new report from the Urban Land Institute, Housing in America: Integrating Housing, Health, and Resilience in a Changing Environment, explores the connection between strengthening the resilience of housing and communities to severe weather and building for health and wellness," writes Robert Krueger at Urban Land Institute.

"Housing in America points to the need for greater emphasis on community building, including housing, that is more adaptable to changing environmental conditions, including more frequent extreme weather events, and which, as a result, is better equipped to protect the health and well-being of residents. 'Continuing innovation in housing and community design practices, building standards, and infrastructure can help mitigate the growing risks presented by weather volatility and sea-level rise, while enhancing the livability and health of communities and strengthening their triple bottom line: social, environmental, and economic performance,' the report states."
