CNT delivers innovative analysis and solutions that support community-based organizations and local governments to create neighborhoods that are equitable, sustainable, and resilient.
CNT is committed to improving cities’ economic and environmental sustainability, resilience, and quality of life. We work to help all people access:
• Shared prosperity through improving economic and job opportunities and reducing the cost of living.
• Livable, connected, and equitable neighborhoods with better choices in transportation, energy, water, and other basic needs.
• Resilient communities in the face of the changing climate and economy.
• Innovative infrastructure that is efficient, cost-effective, environmentally friendly and, whenever possible, at a community scale.
We work in three areas:
Economic Development and Poverty Reduction
Capturing the value of better urban infrastructure and location efficiency to reduce the cost of living, create jobs, and improve the environment.
Building resource-efficient and adaptive communities that minimize their contribution to climate change, and reduce and prevent its adverse impacts, such as urban flooding.
Creating data tools and analyses that help policymakers and communities make better decisions and take action to create more sustainable communities (Source).
