Urban Green Equity


The assessment of urban green equity is a crucial task in the context of sustainable urban development. This evaluation aims to ensure the fair distribution and utilization of green spaces, ensuring that residents from different social, economic, and cultural backgrounds can equally benefit from these areas. Urban green equity, as an interdisciplinary field, covers perspectives from various disciplines such as urban planning, geography, ecology, environment, social sciences, and economics. Each perspective has different research focuses. In the field of urban planning, the emphasis is on spatial and distributional fairness, considering indicators such as green space ratio, per capita area, accessibility, and quality. The assessment framework particularly emphasizes the accessibility and usability of green spaces, highlighting the convenience for residents to reach and utilize urban green areas.
