On 31 March 2009 over 100 public health and environment professionals met to develop a list of recommendations for State and National Governments in relation to environment and health (E&H).
Six key themes were discussed:
|Indigenous environmental health|
|Children's environment and health|
|Linking sustainable development and human health: where next?|
|Quantifying environment and health risks|
|Identifying the environment and health research agenda|
|The interface between regulation and action in health and environment|
For long term sustainable funding and to investigate alternative resource allocation models that are more appropriate to E&H issues.
|To clarify the opportunities and potential actions of local government in E&H and empower local government to address E&H issues locally.|
|To enhance and support workforce development - with an emphasis on supporting Indigenous Environmental Health Workers - through effective training and mentoring.|
