Author(s):Contractor, Annie
Contributor(s):Greenlee, Andrew
Subject(s):sustainability
displacement
Geographic Coverage:Fortaleza, Brazil
Abstract:This study analyzes whether transit projects rooted in sustainability are meeting the triple bottom line of social, economic, and environmental sustainability, with a focus on equitable impacts to both formal and informal settlements. Specifically, this thesis seeks to uncover why infrastructure investments justified as increasing the capacity for sustainability continue to result in the systematic displacement of low-income informal households.
