Long Beach CBPR Pilot Project

Air Quality and the Long Beach Cambodian Community pilot project sought to identify the localized health hazards from outdoor air pollution, and sensitive receptors such as children and the elderly within proximity to these health
hazards. This project examined Cambodian community knowledge related to air pollution, health impacts, and potential advocacy strategies. Community agencies and residents collaborated with air quality and health researchers in all stages of the research project: development, training, data collection, data analysis, and dissemination of findings. This project raised critical awareness and capacity of the
Cambodian community to collect and analyze environmental health data for use in developing advocacy strategies. Methodology included ground-truthing and focus groups. Ground-truthing maps revealed many existing sensitive land uses within the 1000 ft buffer areas required by the California Air Resources Board, as well as significant areas of residential land use. The focus group findings highlighted that while residents are aware of air pollution and its health impacts, and may employ individual strategies to protect themselves, they are not as aware of the macro-level systems and policy changes that would help to ensure environmental and
community protections. Both the focus group and the ground-truthing revealed an increase in both community capacity and interest in air quality issues. Project results were disseminated directly to the community and at two public health conferences.
