Abstract: This document reports on the proceedings of the Third Ministerial Conference on Environment and Health, held in London, United Kingdom, from 16 to 18 June 1999. It summarizes the main discussions held and decisions taken, as a supplement to the Conference working papers (and in particular the London Declaration, which documents countries' agreement to future action). The theme of the Conference was "Action in partnership", and this report records the emphasis placed during each session on putting plans into effect and on intersectoral collaboration as a means of achieving this. The Conference adopted three documents: the London Declaration, a Charter on Transport, Environment and Health, and a Protocol on Water and Health. The Conference welcomed the participation of nongovernmental organizations and the organization of a parallel conference (the Healthy Planet Forum) for them. The mandate of the European Environment and Health Committee was renewed for a further five years, in order to coordinate activities agreed on by the Conference
