Abstract: The WHO European Centre for Environment and Health is developing a system of indicators to support the monitoring of public health and environmental policies. When established the system will provide the member states with appropriate information to make comparisons and support their national policies. It will also allow tracking the progress in environment and health across Europe and contributing to the broader objective of reporting on sustainable development. The original proposal was tested in several countries of the WHO European region for feasibility and policy relevance. The process resulted in refinement of the indicators system. The WHO meeting selected the set of 'core' indicators for pilot implementation, identified priority data gaps and recommended further methodological developments. Participants also showed examples of indicator-based, policy-oriented reporting. The experts agreed on the scope and actions for the next phases of the process and adopted the protocol for the pilot survey of the EH indicators system. Updated methodology is given together with the report of the meeting. Currently the process focuses on setting up the system, to link with assessment and reporting mechanisms
