A Coastal Resilience Center research team, led by Dr. Cassandra R. Davis of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, has released a report that explores the disproportionate impacts of federal mitigation assistance on socially marginalized groups and under-resourced neighborhoods. The purpose of the report, Support Strategies for Socially Marginalized Neighborhoods Likely Impacted by Natural Hazards, is to improve mitigation efforts by addressing equity in emergency management, ultimately supporting the creation of national policy for federal organizations including FEMA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and others.
