Report of a Commonwealth Secretariat Expert Group Meeting, Aberdeen, Scotland – February 1995




In response to recommendations made on environment and health by the 10th Commonwealth Health Ministers Meeting (Cyprus, 1992), an expert group meeting was arranged to prepare suggestions for improving the role of health assessment (HA) in overall environmental assessment (EA) of projects, plans and policies. There was considerable consensus that such an improvement would depend on many factors, including increased awareness of the importance of human health in the economic development effort, more appropriate legislation and more adequately trained human resources. Concentrating on the training needs, the meeting went on by establishing a logical framework of EA components, which led to the identification of skills required and key sources of information to be used.
