Tools to Aid Environmental Decision Making
Gochin and J. Environmental management systems, communicative action and organizational learning. Assessing the sustainability of minerals development in Devon, UK: evolution of appraisal methods. Emma James. However, effective action requires renewed moral commitment to sustainable development and determined political action through international and national partnerships. Together we must translate our global knowledge-base on environment and health linkages into practical policy tools and action at the country level, incorporating environment and health considerations into social, economic and political decisions.
Simple and cost-effective solutions can best be implemented when potential impacts are considered early in the policy process -- rather than after environmental damage has occurred, health problems have emerged and human lives cut short or damaged. This requires an inclusive approach to the problems.
For too long, the vicious cycle of unsustainable development, ecosystem degradation, poverty and ill health has been addressed sectorally, from a crisis management and curative perspective, rather than multisectorally and through preventive strategies.

Sponsored by the Government of Canada and supported by the United States Environment Protection Agency, the overriding mission is the facilitation of better access at country level to existing knowledge, tools and methods for making good policy decisions on environment and health. This intersectoral approach can optimize the use of economic tools to quantify the health and environmental impacts of alternative choices and, where relevant, translate these impacts into the monetary terms upon which decision-makers often base their judgements.
Using the tools of economic valuation to address health and environmental problems creates other synergies. It contributes to a greater appreciation of the goods and services provided by natural ecosystems. It can help decision-makers to identify mutually beneficial strategies that simultaneously promote human well-being and environmental protection and development, as well as poverty reduction.
In Jordan, Thailand and Uganda, HELI's initial country partners, decision-makers from health, environment and other government sectors are working together to assess water, agricultural and livestock management policies from an integrated health and environmental perspective. At the global level, HELI is developing tools and resources relevant to country-level policy-makers. This includes guidance on the conduct of assessments and on economic analysis of linked impacts.
A web portal is being developed to provide an initial point of access for information about priority environmental hazards, related health issues and best practice policy approaches -- with reference to the wider range of WHO and UNEP resources available.

No initiative is a panacea or a "one-fix" solution. However, by linking scientific knowledge to its application in a demand-driven approach and by working directly with country-level policy-makers from a wide range of sectors, UNEP and WHO can catalyse the design of more complementary environment, social and economic policies. Our country partners share our conviction that it is time to adopt a more proactive approach to environment and health decision-making, addressing the root causes of much disease rather than the symptoms alone.
