Climate change is a threat multiplier. Social variables such as age, income, and health or disability status often determine the ability to prepare for, respond to, and recover from climate catastrophes. In addition, low income neighborhoods often are in areas that have greater exposure to hazards such as flooding or extreme heat. In the absence of proactive efforts to address equity concerns in resilience planning, climate change will reinforce and worsen current socioeconomic disparities, resulting in greater burdens and lessened opportunity for low-income and other disadvantaged populations.
