About the Project

Gentrification has become prominent feature of many urban areas as redevelopment attracts new residents who search for the urban conveniences. In recent years, as a number of climate-induced hazards has increased in their frequency and intensity, a new type of gentrification has recently started to appear – climate gentrification, manifesting itself in residential projects that are pitched as ‘climate resilient’. This project will investigate various gentrification projects in order to understand to what extend climate change adaptation measures are taken into account and whether this widens the inequality gap by forcing those who cannot afford living in climate resilience houses to move away to risky areas.
