Overview

Key features/aspects of the Guidebook include:

  • Based on extensive independent research designed to “get below the surface,” providing essential, relevant information without extraneous “fluff.”
  • Selective in terms of listings, focusing on identified “key players” (i.e., a “Who’s-Who) as well as key information sources.
  • Focuses on the activities, contributions and viewpoints of listed organization/entities, as well what each has to offer (e.g., tools/resources, publications, etc.) to interested parties.
  • Profiles much more than just environmentally-focused public interest groups, including governmental organizations (agencies, etc.), multilaterals (the UN, WTO, IMF, World Bank, etc.), political organizations/parties, business groups and labor unions, professional societies, job/career organizations, media-related entities (offering news, magazines, books, etc.), data/info-rich websites/ gateways, and “opposing views” groups (groups labeled as “anti-environmental” by critics/observers).
  • Adopts a relatively wide definition of “environmental” issues/activities, considering key associated issue areas such as agriculture, energy, public health, trade/commerce, and transportation/infrastructure, as well as more underlying factors such as consumerism, land use/planning, and population growth.
  • Identifies specific key reports and other publications judged to represent “essential reading” for interested parties.
  • Provides key contact information to obtain further information including through the Internet.
  • Includes summary indices that: a) list all profiled orgs/entities alphabetically by type (government, NGOs, etc.) and b) list all identified “key reports/publications” alphabetically by issue category (conservation, pollution, energy, etc.).
