Climate Change Case Studies Series
Trust for America’s Health (2021). Climate Change Case Studies Series.
As a follow up to the Climate Change & Health: Assessing State Preparedness document developed in 2020 by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and Trust for America’s Health (cited in this document), this case study series is focused on two factors of equity. The first is procedural equity, which addresses to the inclusiveness and accessibility of the process employed to conceptualize, design, and administer programs. The second is distributional equity, which addresses to the level of fairness in allocating program benefits and burdens. In part one of this series, case studies are focused on disadvantaged communities in California, coastal communities in Louisiana, and populations affected by extreme heat in Philadelphia. Part two of this series includes adaptation efforts that result in distributional equity and allocation of benefits.
