Globally, cities have initiated coastal adaptation planning to address increasing risks from sea level rise while also recognizing its impact on existing social inequities. Planning scholars and practitioners are integrating equity into coastal adaptation, yet standards for evaluating equity and justice in coastal adaptation planning have not been well outlined or applied. More research is needed on assessing equitable coastal adaptation planning. This manuscript presents two papers in response. Chapter 1 is titled 'Evaluating Equity and Justice in Urban Coastal Adaptation Planning: Introducing the JustAdapt Framework,' an evaluative framework using five forms of justice. Chapter 2 presents 'Evaluating Equity and Justice in Vancouver's Sea2City Design Challenge,' a case study analysis applying the JustAdapt framework to the Sea2City Design Challenge. Through this manuscript, I offer the JustAdapt Framework as a tool to disrupt dominant norms and inspire scholars and practitioners to embrace reflexivity and accountability as they plan with shifting tidelines.
