An important milestone in the journey toward a healthy environment for residents living near ports is taking place: the Moving Forward Network has launched a campaign focused on promoting zero emission technologies to reduce diesel emissions and meet clean air standards.
The Outreach Program at USC Environmental Health has been part of coalitions since 2005 working to reduce the health impacts of international trade. With the Trade, Health and Environment Impact Project (coalition based in Southern California), the nationwide Moving Forward Network was developed to share knowledge on the impacts of goods movement and strategies for preventing and reducing those impacts. The Outreach Program is a member as an ally organization, providing assistance on environmental health information.
