This Workbook will help community leaders, local organizers, and citizens groups assess environmental health problems in their neighborhoods and assist them in tackling these problems. It outlines an approach to identifying problems, gathering information, and establishing the community’s priorities for improving the environmental health of its residents. The Workbook is divided into four parts. It is written mainly for the citizen organizer, community leader, or other person who will serve as the project manager and take the lead in organizing the assessment. Part One is a brief introduction and discussion of this Workbook. Part Two discusses the reasons why your community should undertake an environmental health assessment, and outlines the assessment process. Part Three explains the community environmental health assessment process step-by-step, and shows citizens in detail how to conduct an assessment. Part Four suggests possible next steps after a community assessment is completed.
