Environmental protection is a global issue. But most of the action is happening at the local level. How can communities — even regions — keep their air clean, their water pure, and their people and property safe from climate and environmental hazards?

Newly updated, The Environmental Planning Handbook gives local governments, nonprofits, and citizens the guidance they need to take on the job. Author Tom Daniels tells step by step how to create an action plan for a better environment. He clarifies complex environmental issues, looks at current efforts to boost sustainability, and shows local governments how they can make environmental quality part of their planning.

Since the first edition of this essential guide came out in 2003, Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, Superstorm Sandy ravaged New York and New Jersey, and drought hit two-thirds of the continental United States. Local communities can’t wait for a global response. They need to take action now. With The Environmental Planning Handbook, they have a place to start.
