The Environmental Inequality Lab

How Can We Reduce Disparities in Environmental Quality?

Our team of researchers apply a data-driven, evidence based, approach to understanding how the environment influences economic opportunity, poverty, and inequality.

What's the Problem?

Environmental quality plays an important role in shaping economic outcomes and opportunities.

Disparities in exposure to environmental inequality exacerbate economic inequality.


Our Approach

We need to understand what's wrong, what works, and why.

Collaborating with researchers, NGOs, and government departments, we combine administrative records, survey data, and geographic information systems to quantify the social and economic consequences of pollution, natural disasters, climate change, and environmental policies.

We want to foster, support, and encourage demand-driven, evidence-based, policy.
