Abstract

This document provides a summary of the technical meeting on greenspace and cumulative risk assessment (GS-CRA) convened May 4−5, 2015 in Cincinnati, OH, by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Research and Development (ORD) National Center for Environmental Assessment (NCEA). This report highlights the presentations, discussions, and practical suggestions offered by the meeting participants; however, the report does not present consensus opinions of the meeting participants. Meeting Objective: Identify and evaluate approaches and appropriate data sources for measuring greenspace and exposure, and examine the distribution of health impacts of greenspace (e.g., across socio-economic status, sensitive populations), including risk reductions, from a cumulative risk assessment perspective, with attention to uncertainty in reporting and measurement.
