Governments and international agencies invest large sums on development projects in energy, agriculture, industry and other sectors. The environmental impact of these projects is frequently assessed. But it is the experience of many health professionals that the health impact component receives too little attention. This book has been written to redress that balance. Intended for an audience of non-health specialists, it should be useful for students of environment, engineering, development and health, as well as for consultants and managers engaged in development planning. Salient features of the book include: a wide ranging review of the health hazards of development projects; a simple procedure for assessing health risks and their management; and a health impact assessment exercise for students and professionals.
