Chicago Urban Greenprint: Combining Social and Environmental Data to Determine Target Locations for Conservation in Cook County
The Nature Conservancy collaborated with local partners at the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning and Morton Arboretum to look at areas in Cook County that have poor air quality, high risk of flooding, and high heat. We layered this with data on income level and high percentages of youth and elderly to identify neighborhoods where conservation interventions will make the biggest difference.
