Collaborative research project to develop methods for joining social and built environment vulnerability into a single framework.

Services Provided

The research team will develop novel methods for coupling socio-demographic characteristics with new infrastructure vulnerability measures to assess the nexus of coupled socio-technical risk, using Los Angeles and Phoenix as case studies.

Who We Serve

Communities of Los Angeles and Phoenix.

Mission and Goals

The infrastructure vulnerability indices assess a neighborhood's access to cooling resources, whether that be air conditioning, building passive cooling, access to community refuge & hydration centers, or disruptions of electricity supply.
