Stantec’s Greg Rodriguez and Kate Jack share key considerations for achieving equity and resilience in any community in the Journal of Public Health and Emergency

Building health and mobility together has the potential to be the key cog in redesigning communities and transforming the way urban development and land use is approached today. Our Smart(ER) Mobility team recently explored the connection in “Supporting healthier and more resilient communities through investments in mobility: A narrative review of the synergies between mobility options and health through the lens of COVID-19,” published in the Journal of Public Health and Emergency.  

The paper introduces and connects concepts such as community resilience, or the capacity of a community to respond positively to crises, and related resilience topics in the context of transportation, technology, and health. This paper represents our Smart(ER) Mobility team’s ongoing focus on the connection between health, mobility, and resiliency, and the role that technology can play in supporting resilient communities through the right approaches to policy and incentives that align with a community’s needs and goals, supporting a more inclusive and resilient transportation system.
