Descripción
Keywords: social and environmental equity, sustainable urban planning, urban "accessibility". The last twenty years have witnessed the emergence of a scientific and political debate in the United States around the questions of justice and environmental equity. An approach to evaluating environmental justice has been defined that looks at the distribution of environmental risks across socio-economic and ethnic groups (United Church of Christ Commission for racial justice, 1987). This debate has been transposed to Europe by downplaying the ethnic dimension and stressing the role of the social and spatial dimensions in the process that creates environmental inequalities. In this article we investigate the effects that the public action resulting from the new methods of sustainable urban planning can have on social and environmental equity at the urban scale by looking at two areas in the South of Europe ­Naples and Barcelona- which already have some tradition of treating social and spatial equity issues through urban planning tools. We argue that new urban planning methods create tensions between social and environmental equity goals at the urban scale. Using a definition of socio-economic equity based on "accessibility" (access to the city-center, access to green areas, access to the network of urban services, access to the labour market) we investigate the differential impact across district areas of urban planning practices that put the accent on environmental goals.
