This Web page has been created as a resource for you to find environment-related guidance and information. NEHA believes that protecting our natural environment is critical to the health and prosperity of our communities and country. Please check the information and Web sites below and join us in a commitment to environmental improvements in your day-to-day activities of your organizations.

 


NEHA has developed an Overview of Climate Considerations in response to a request to more clearly define the specific areas where EH can play a role and actions EH can take in mitigating the negative impacts of climate change. This paper also describes the challenge of workforce development that is foundational to EH’s response and some specific steps NEHA is currently and aiming to take to engage EH more deeply in climate change response.
