Abstract: The Office of Performance, Risk, and Social Science (PRSSO) is partnering with the NOAA Central Library to familiarize the NOAA science community with the concepts of climate equity and environmental justice and to examine how NOAA may better serve vulnerable and
underrepresented communities. We will bring in leading scholars and researchers from academia and across the federal government to discuss their work in this field. The goal of this seminar series is to help the broader NOAA community understand the importance of climate
equity and foster productive collaborations that advance the agency’s climate and environmental justice efforts. We hope to generate a set of best-practices to guide the efforts of NOAA and other federal agencies to address the Biden Administration's equity and climate Executive Orders.
