  1. REC in the European Environment and Health Process MARTA SZIGETI BONIFERT Executive Director

  2. Loss of statistical life expectancy

  3. The most vulnerable areas in Europe are • Southern Europe and the entire Mediterranean Basin due to the combined effect of high temperature increases and reduced precipitation in areas already coping with water scarcity.

  4. Heat waves Data-Source: IVS, WHO, …

  5. Legal instruments and policy tools • The legal and policy instruments in some pilot NIS and SEE countries were assessed and specifically addressed to the four Regional Priority Goals of the CEHAPE • RPG I: Water and sanitation • RPG II: Transport safety and accidents • RPG III: In door and outdoor air quality • RPG IV: Chemicals safety REC Video – Click!

  6. REC and E&H in Europe • EEHC member: • active involvement in Budapest E&H conference • shaping the policy documents • Healthy Planet Forum in 2004 • Member of the CEHAPE Task Force, implementation of Regional Priority goals in Europe, 2004/2009 • EEHC Regional meeting in REC, 27-28 November 2006 • Roadmap towards the 5th E&H Ministerial meeting in Parma in 2010

  7. E&H Topic Area focuses on • Supporting cooperation between environmental / health sector by policy integration on international and national level in all REC countries • Strengthening the role of the precautionary principle in public health and environment protection, with special focus on the future of our children • Implementation of the EU E&H Strategy, Action Plan and the CEHAPE by active involvement in the European processes / by multi-stakeholder cooperation • Regional participation in implementation of the CEHAPE Programme Goal 3: Prevention and reducing respiratory disease

  8. REC Projects • E&H: • Indoor air quality in schools, reducing respiratory diseases of children (8 countries, 3 years, research) • Involvement of civil society in CEHAPE implementation, awareness raising • Sustainable Transport: • Sustainable transport, Survey of Public Transport in 6 cities in CEE • Urban Transport Benchmarking

  9. In-door air quality in schools • Pilot project in 2004: Clean environment, better future for our children • In-door air quality in schools project in 8 countries in 2006-2009 • reporting in E&H Ministerial conference in 2009 • Awareness raising for improvement of indoor air quality in the schools • Adoption of the Italian-Hungarian pilot project concept

  10. Why we need to improve the indoor air quality in schools? • respiratory diseases: 15-20%, in age 11-13 • time spent in the school and its effect on the health condition of the children • 6-8 hours, O2 <>CO2 concentration, NO2 from heating, dust, organic chemicals • the school environment – outdoor air quality

  11. 2. Indoor air quality in schools • Need>> investigation of the „legal frame” of in-door air quality in schools • Need>> complex research>>in-door air quality in schools, in homes and living conditions in homes >> respiratory diseases • Need>>Training of the selected school staff

  12. European cooperation on in-door air quality in schools • In-door air quality project in 8 countries in 2006-2009 • Austria, Italy, Norway-Hungary, Slovakia • Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia • >> reporting: E&H Ministerial conference in 2010

  13. Perspectives • E&H Research • Project implementation with partners in Europe • Strategic Environmental Assessment • E&H Impact Assessment • Facilitating E&H sector policy integration in the CEE region
