Identifying and Prioritizing Environmentally Impacted and Vulnerable Communities
April 16 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is launching a training webinar series to build the capacity of environmental justice practitioners working at the state level. The first webinar on “Identifying and Prioritizing Environmentally Impacted and Vulnerable Communities” is now open for registration. Learn more and register here.
This webinar will provide state management and staff with a basic overview on the factors, data sources and tools that can be used to identify environmentally impacted and vulnerable communities. It will discuss ways this information has been used to prioritize attention to such communities and consider their issues in the decision-making process. The webinar will highlight the ways that California and Minnesota have incorporated this information into their programs. We will hear special remarks from Myra Reece, Director of Environmental Affairs, South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Affairs, to kick off the webinar series.
