A database previously open to government officials only has been made available to the general pulbic, with information on various sustainable development topics.

Climate change and land use are just a couple of the topics listed as part of the SustainLane database. The Resource Shelf website highlighted the opening.

Shirl Kennedy, senior editor as Resource Shelf, cited SustainLane’s director, Warren Karlenzig, on what visitors to the site could expect to find:

Now you can read full documents submitted by urban planners and sustainability managers from across the country. Find out what cities, counties, and states are doing to improve their carbon footprints, quality of life and resource efficiency. Find the latest programs in urban ecology.

Visitors can browse the knowledge base of topics for more information on best practices for economic development or energy efficiency, among others. City-specific documents, with recent entries from Kansas City, Minneapolis, and Santa Barbera, show how those municipalities wish to address a particular issue.

Kennedy said these resources would be updated regularly as people submit more information. We would be interested in seeing Yahoo and its green-minded efforts take notice of SustainLane, as the site seems to fit in with the message Yahoo wants to communicate about environmental issues.
