2016 Air Quality Management Plan (AQMP) -- Socioeconomic Assessment Environmental Justice Working Group

In the recent review of South Coast AQMD socioeconomic assessment, the independent reviewer Abt Associates recommended South Coast AQMD staff to conduct a systematic literature review and expand upon the existing analysis of environmental justice (EJ).

This group will be tasked with reviewing recommendations for potential environmental justice analyses to be conducted in the Socioeconomic Assessment of the 2016 AQMP. Industrial Economics, Inc. is under contract to review recent environmental justice studies and analyses in order to recommend best practices for the Socioeconomic Assessment. We believe stakeholder input will help us develop the most applicable approach for our region.
