Mapping and Planning for Public Health
The Public Health Alliance of Southern California is releasing the California Healthy Places Index to map cumulative health advantage. The index maps social determinants of health: economic, social, political, and environmental factors that influence people's physical and cognitive function, behavior, and disease.

City and Regional Planning for Parks, Open Space, and Agriculture
The Nature Conservancy, Trust for Public Land, and The Conservation Fund recently launched the Greenprint Resource Hub, a first-of-its-kind database for practitioners, policymakers, and community members looking to incorporate parks, open space, and agriculture into their economic and social goals. The database includes detailed case studies of how cities and surrounding regions have incorporated nature into city and regional planning, informing their decisions about how to grow and where to protect land to secure habitat, water, recreation, and food production.

Social Equity Policies for SB 375 Targets
From 2010 - 2012, ClimatePlan partnered with Public Advocates and others to promote a socially equitable approach to SB 375 targets. This approach would analyze the potential beneficial and harmful impacts of targets and SCSs on lower income Californians and communities of color specifically, and select alternatives that maximize both GHG reduction and positive equity impacts while avoiding or offsetting any negative impacts.
SB 375 Health & Equity Metrics
This brief summary by Human Impact Partners, created in 2011, provides Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) with a set of metrics to promote health and equity as well as sustainability. For example, a plan selected using the indicator “Automobile Level of Service (LOS) on Roadways,” will prioritize making driving easier, despite the many ways driving harms health; instead, using “Premature Death due to Traffic-Related Pollution” will be more likely to reduce pollution by promoting alternate forms of transportation.
