World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 2002 )
Solid waste and health / principal adviser, Maggie Thurgood

Abstract

Most human activities create waste. The majority of those wastes are not, in themselves, a potential threat to health but their correct management can help to minimise or avoid associated risks. There is no single "correct" way to collect, handle and dispose of wastes, but rather a range of options. These must be tailored to local circumstances, such as the amount and type of waste, regional geology and climate, and economic conditions. Local authorities must encourage the minimisation of both the quantity and toxicity of waste as an important first stage. Sound management of the remaining wastes will help to protect the local and global environment. This booklet provides an overview of solid waste management

Early human health effects of climate change : report on a WHO Workshop, Rome, Italy 21-23 May 1998
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 1999 )
Abstract

Increases in temperature and changes in precipitation patterns have occurred all over Europe and the world during most of this century. Such climatic changes past, present and future may lead to the occurrence of specific direct and indirect health effects. To address the public health policy issues related to the anticipated climate change in Europe, a working group was convened by the Rome Division of the European Centre for Environment and Health. The group was given the dual tasks of assessing the likelihood that early effects of climate change on human health are already present and detectable, and of identifying appropriate indicators for any such changes. The different possible health outcomes were reviewed in detail and potentially useful instruments for their detection and monitoring discussed. A second meeting of the same working group was planned, with the aim of developing specific recommendations for European ministers of environment and health, to be considered at the Third European Conference on Environment and Health in London in June 1999

Implementing the European Regional Framework for Action to protect health from climate change: A status report
( 2015 )
Abstract

How far have Member States in the WHO European Region progressed in implementing the European Commitment to Act on climate change and health? This was the question addressed to members of the Working Group on Health in Climate Change (HIC) of the European Environment and Health Task Force in summer 2012. The HIC members were asked to respond to a comprehensive questionnaire to assess the current status of health-relevant climate change mitigation and adaptation actions. A total of 22 Member States answered the questions focusing on eight thematic areas or topics.
