Advancing Equity and Justice in Megaregions: A Case Law Analysis on the Challenges in Developing Disproportionality Metrics for Successful Suits

The goal of this project is to develop appropriate workflows for conducting environmental justice (EJ) analyses including community/population definitions, performance measures, and metrics of disproportionality. The research team will apply these workflows to the structured identification and measurement of disparate impacts required during the NEPA/EJ analysis of megaregional planning initiatives. To reach this end, a pragmatic, results-oriented approach to research tasks will be followed throughout the course of the project.
