4/8/2014 - The U.S. EPA recently released a new, online Report on the Environment (ROE) as a draft for public comment. The interactive ROE 2014 website provides detailed information on over 80 environmental indicators that describe the state of the U.S. environment, encompassing air, water, land, human health, ecology, and sustainability. See http://cfpub.epa.gov/roe.
For the first time, the ROE includes an integrative “Triple Value” framework that shows how these indicators are related to important environmental, economic, and social issues of our time. The framework was developed by Joseph Fiksel, OSU Center for Resilience, who has been serving as Special Assistant for Sustainability to EPA. See http://cfpub.epa.gov/roe/frameworks.cfm.
