Cumulative Impacts Working Group call: Assessing and Addressing Cumulative Impacts in Communities

Dec 1, 2011

Date: Thursday December 1, 2011

People experience the environment of particular places. Every community has a different mix of environmental conditions and factors. We know that environmental contaminants are unequally allocated to communities of color and poorer communities. We also know that social factors interact with environmental factors to influence health. Understanding the cumulative impacts of environmental and social factors is essential to sound public health and environmental protection policies.
 
Featured speaker:
Amy D Kyle, PhD, MPH, an associate adjunct professor in the Division of Environmental Health Sciences, School of Public Health, UC Berkeley has worked on cumulative impacts since 1999 when she was involved with the California Air Resources Board in developing guidance to communities to address environmental justice concerns in land use planning. More recently, she has been working on identifying existing models for addressing cumulative impacts in American environmental law and policy and developing models to expand this to more fully address the environment as people experience it and redress inequalities. 

This call was moderated by Elise Miller, MEd, CHE Director and Carolyn Raffensperger, SEHN.
