Environmental Decisions in New Mexico
- New Mexico
- Conservation Voters New Mexico Education Fund
Conservation Voters New Mexico Education Fund (CVNMEF) will conduct an HIA to examine how state environmental decisions, such as converting diesel school buses to electric vehicles, could affect state residents’ health through improved air quality. The HIA will focus on addressing social and economic drivers of health in Rio Arriba and McKinley counties, where air quality is particularly poor compared to the rest of the state. Air pollution contributes to respiratory and cardiovascular diseases such as asthma, especially in children and the elderly. CVNMEF will engage a broad range of stakeholders, including immigrant rights advocacy groups, transportation organizations, and community members.
Through HIA screening, CVNMEF and partners will identify a decision to evaluate for the HIA.
