The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s next State EJ Training Webinar session will focus on “Incorporating Equity in Disaster Mitigation and Climate Adaptation Programs.” In light of current severe weather events both proliferating and intensifying, this webinar is extremely relevant and timely.
It will feature presentations from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection on social vulnerability assessment, the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs on the state’s equity investments in its climate adaptation programs, and the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality on the inspiring story of the relocation of the historic African American township of Princeville, NC.
