Martin Doyle, Director of the Water Policy Program, will speak at "Infrastructure Priorities: Water’s Role in Promoting Equitable Planning and Investment," part of the virtual event series Beyond Talking Points: Policy Solutions for Environmental Justice. The event will feature faculty experts from across Duke and the Aspen Institute to discuss the connection between environmental justice and a variety of other policy areas.
The Biden administration has made clear its goals to address the climate crisis. A key component in tackling climate issues, domestic and abroad, is environmental justice. Environmental justice touches all aspects of life – from the food we put on our tables, the water in our faucets, the communities we live in, even our international affairs and much more.
In this series, we will bring together experts on a variety of topics that have direct or downstream effects on environmental justice, both domestically and abroad. Our panelists will consider ways that we can improve affordability, advance sustainability and increase access to essential resources as well as provide their recommendations and policy considerations for Congress and the Biden administration.
