Pathways to Environmental Justice: Advancing a Framework for Evaluation

This report seeks to advance a framework that could be used by researchers, regulators, grantees, and other community members interested in the effective design and implementation of policies and programs to reduce environmental inequities, with the ultimate goal to close the environmental justice gap. The report builds upon a briefing paper created by the UCLA Luskin Center for participants of “Closing the Environmental Justice Gap: A Workshop on Advancing Evaluation Methods.” This landmark gathering, co-hosted by the Luskin Center and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, brought together environmental justice leaders from across the nation to develop the sub-field of EJ policy and program evaluation.
