This paper uses the framework of environmental justice to analyze how these inequities affected the impacts of Katrina. It examines how patterns of settlement exposed communities to increased damage and erected barriers to disaster precautions and reconstruction. The paper concludes with proposed solutions to remove these barriers and prevent their reoccurrence.
