Public outreach, accessibility, and transparency are central to EDGI’s vision of good environmental governance; we apply the same aspirations for our own work. Documents appearing here reflect that commitment, with a report that recounts our early accomplishments and plans below.
Public Protections under Threat at the EPA (March 27, 2017)
Protecting safe drinking water and healthy air depends on the EPA’s ability to incorporate the best available evidence from all scientific fields of study into its risk assessments and regulation drafting processes. EDGI’s analysis and research here shows that the passage of H.R. 1430 would block the EPA from using the data it needs to fulfill its mission of protecting public health and the environment. Please also read EDGI’s letter to Congress regarding H.R. 1430 as well.
EDGI Introduction and Accomplishments Report (EDGI, February 1, 2017)
As we follow the impacts of the transition on agency websites, operations, capacities, and policies, we’ll be preparing and posting here other written works, oriented to general as well as more specialized readerships, that summarize and analyze what we find. Among the public outreach activities in the works are roundtables, biweekly reports, and an assessment of the new administration’s first hundred days.
