Planning Webcast Series: New Data Tools
March 11, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
March 11 – Planning and the Black Community Division – New Data Tools for Supporting Analysis of Equitable Development and Environmental Justice – Speakers: Kevin Olp, Sarah Treuhaft, Carlton Ely. 1.5 CM credits pending.
Understanding the challenges and opportunities communities face—economic, social, and environmental—is a prerequisite for making investments that achieve their goals. To respond to this need, environmental justice stakeholders have begun developing analytical tools that can give communities rich and accessible information for supporting local goals for environmental protection and equitable development in cities and regions. This webinar will cover two of these tools – EPA’s EJSCREEN, an environmental justice screening and mapping tool, and the National Equity Atlas a comprehensive data resource to track, measure, and make the case for inclusive growth developed by PolicyLink and the Program for Environmental and Regional Equity. The presentations will explain what these tools are, how they have been used in real world scenarios to advance equity in local and regional development practices, followed by questions and answers.
