Climate Change and Environmental Justice Lab

Focus on Climate Change and Environmental Justice (2015-2016)

The Climate Change and Environmental Justice (CCEJ) Lab, beginning in Spring 2015, will investigate the potential impacts of climate change and sea level rise on vulnerable communities in Rhode Island. The ultimate goal of the CCEJ Lab is to reduce the climate change-related public health risks to individuals in several targeted communities in Rhode Island, and increase the capacities of these communities to respond to climate change threats.  The Lab will draw on Brown faculty and partner organizations' significant strengths around climate modeling, environmental sociology, and public health.  

The Lab will be co-chaired by Timmons Roberts, Professor of Environmental Studies and Sociology; and Robert Vanderslice and Julia Gold from the Rhode Island Department of Health.
