  06 Dec 2005 Click to Access:  Children's Environmental Health Indicators
Pascale Scapecchi
Environmental health indicators can provide clear and concise information on the state of the environment and its potential effects on human health. They represent a useful tool to support policy, particularly environmental policies whose effects may only be detectable many years after their implementation due to their long time horizon.
Environmental health indicators can be of particular relevance to highlight the greater vulnerability of certain populations, such as children or the elderly, and to account for it in public policies related to health and the environment. In particular for children, an intervention in the early stages of life can have lifelong benefits for society as a whole. As such, the development of children’s environmental health indicators appears to be essential.
  06 Dec 2005 Click to Access:  Multilateral Environmental Agreements and Private Investment

The OECD Workshop on Multilateral Environmental Agreements and Private Investment, organised in co-operation with the Finnish Ministry for the Environment, took place in Helsinki on 16-17 June 2005. It provided an opportunity to bring relevant stakeholders together to exchange views and discuss recent experiences regarding private investment that contributes to the solution of global environmental problems.

This report has two parts: the key messages emerging from the workshop (Part I) and a summary of the presentations and discussions (Part II). It builds upon presentations by, and discussions among, workshop participants who represented national governments, MEA Secretariats and implementing agencies, businesses, international governmental and non-governmental organisations, research institutes and other stakeholder groups.
