Abstract

This project, conducted for Groundwork London, a non-profit environmental agency, examined the feasibility of climate-proofing projects in four Wandle Valley Regional Park sites. To develop these projects we interviewed local council members, analyzed site-specific climate risks and resources using maps, direct observation, and borough council documents, and researched climate-mitigation technologies. Using this information we recommended three projects per site based on local interest, needs, and resources, including solar lighting, planting projects, river restoration, and plans for community access and education.
