State and local climate change and clean energy policies can improve air quality, reduce negative impacts on human health, and save lives. This webinar will cover three EPA tools that state and local governments can use to estimate and communicate the health and related economic benefits of actions that reduce air emissions:
- Diesel Emissions Quantifier (DEQ): Presented by Julie Wang Hawkins, environmental engineer, EPA Office of Transportation and Air Quality.
- CO-Benefit Risk Assessment (COBRA) screening model: Presented by Denise Mulholland, senior analyst, EPA Office of Atmospheric Programs.
- Environmental Benefits Mapping and Analysis Program (BenMAP): Presented by David Risley, environmental protection specialist, EPA Office of Atmospheric Programs.
Audience: Recommended for state and local air quality, energy, public health, sustainability, and transportation planning staff. For more information about this topic and view presentations as they become available, go to the State Climate and Energy Technical Forum page.
