Annotation: RESOLVEā€™s Solutions Network consulted with a multi-stakeholder working group to create this guidebook on the community health issues that can arise as a result of shale energy development. The goal is for health officials, community members and industry representatives to use this guidebook to 1) gain a basic factual understanding of the potential health issues, 2) easily access in-depth resources from a variety of perspectives, and 3) learn about some options for responding to challenges. The guidebook is organized by both project stage and the typical questions that community stakeholders might have. It also includes case examples in which companies and communities have worked together to find solutions to community concerns. This dynamic guidebook, is to be updated as new information and case studies emerge.
