Overview

This synthesis highlights key findings of the Environment Linkages Initiative, and introduces a "tool-kit" to support integration of environment and health considerations into decision-making. The report represents the culmination of a two-year process of working with stakeholders to identify: current gaps in knowledge and tools that preclude better decisions; strategies for addressing those gaps; a clearinghouse of linked health and environment knowledge and resources; linked health and environment guidance on assessment procedures; and pilot-testing of the approaches in the field.

Each chapter outlines a key theme, and refers the reader to detailed background reports and information sources available on the CD-ROM that accompanies the report.
