The Secretary’s Environmental Justice and Equity Advisory Board is holding a special meeting on cumulative impacts at 6 p.m. March 16 in the Green Square Training Room, 217 West Jones St., Raleigh.
Cumulative Impacts are the totality of exposures to combinations of chemical stressors in the environment and nonchemical stressors like extreme weather events and their effects on health, well-being and quality of life outcomes. Cumulative impacts characterize the potential state of vulnerability or resilience of a community, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. In already overburdened communities, disproportionate impacts can arise from unequal environmental conditions and exposure to multiple stressors.
