Health Impacts at Intersection of Climate Change, Environmental Justice, & Vulnerable Populations
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as part of its Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program, is seeking applications proposing transdisciplinary research with approaches that explore and analyze environmental problems at the intersection of climate change, environmental justice (EJ), and vulnerable populations/lifestages. Specifically, proposed projects should address all of the following research questions: (1) What may be the most influential community-, population- or lifestage-specific vulnerabilities caused by ongoing climate change that would elevate exposure to pollutants or contaminants and further exacerbate the health effects from exposure to pollutants or contaminants in underserved communities? (2) What are the cumulative health impacts of climate change related stressors on vulnerable groups or susceptible lifestages in underserved communities? (3) How can community-based scientific research results be translated and/or applied to provide effective solutions to reduce climate change impacts on human health in underserved communities?
