The 2019/2020 edition of The Environmental Resource Handbook offers a unique combination of more than 6,300 environmental resources and listings, as well as 350 tables, maps, and charts, of environmental statistics and rankings—all revised with the most current information available. 

Hailed as a "must-have resource" for environmentalists, educators, researchers, and students of environmental studies, this tenth edition is comprehensive and thoughtfully arranged for easy and efficient use. Over 200 brand-new listings—all with email addresses, websites, and key contacts—have been added meaning, more ways than the last edition for users to reach exactly who they need.

The Environmental Resource Handbook, 2019-2020 is divided into four sections. 

Section I: Resources is divided into 15 chapters in the following areas: Associations & Organizations, Awards & Honors, Conferences & Trade Shows, Consultants, Environmental Health, Environmental Law, Financial Resources, Government Agencies & Programs, Publications, Research Centers, Educational Programs, Industry Websites, Online Databases, Videos, and Green Product Catalogs. 68 subchapters further organize specific environmental issues in each chapter, from Air & Climate to Water Resources. 

Section II: Statistics & Rankings includes more than 300 tables and charts that comprise 17 main topics, from Agriculture to Green Metro Area Rankings to UV Index. This section makes easy work of compiling environmental snapshots by state, as well as comparing individuals states, counties, and regions of the country. Using the most current data available from more than 40 sources, this section helps complete the picture for those performing research, conducting business, or providing educational and/or consulting services. 

Section III contains two detailed Appendices:

  • A list of Abbreviations & Acronyms, provided by the Environmental Protection Agency, contains listings that identify and define the political and educational language of the industry.
  • Glossary of Terms, also from the EPA, defines thousands of commonly used environmental terms in non-technical language. 

Section IV contains three helpful Indexes for the user:

  • Entry: Lists all entries alphabetically, identified by record number
  • Geographic: Lists entries alphabetical by state
  • Subject: Facilitates search of resources and statistics by environmental categories

This kind of up-to-date environmental data, all in one place, is not available anywhere on the market place today. The 2019-2020 edition of The Environmental Resource Handbook is a must-have for all public and academic libraries as well as any organization with a primary focus on the environment.
