Online

Inhalt :: Content

Umfassendes, internationales Nachschlagewerk mit über 480 ausführlichen Fachbeiträgen zum aktuellen Forschungsstand der Umwelthygiene bzw. Umweltgesundheit. Als Teilbereich des Gesundheitswesens widmet sich die Umwelthygiene der Erforschung aller potentiell gesundheitsschädigenden Umwelteinflüsse und spricht alle physikalischen, chemischen und biologischen Umweltfaktoren an, die von außen über die Luft, dem Wasser, den Nahrungsmitteln und den Strahlungen auf den Menschen einwirken können. Die Fachbeiträge stellen die Umweltgesundheit in den breiteren Kontext der Veränderung der Umwelt und der damit verbundenen ökologischen, politischen, wirtschaftlichen, sozialen und kulturellen Fragen. Der Online-Ausgabe liegt die 2011 erschienene, 5-bändige Printausgabe, hrsg. von Jerome Nriagu unter Mitwirkung zahlreicher Fachwissenschaftler, zugrunde.

Verlagsinformation :: Publisher's information

Environmental health has evolved over time into a complex, multidisciplinary field. Many of the key determinants and solutions to environmental health lie outside the direct realm of health and are strongly dependent on environmental changes, water and sanitation, industrial development, education, employment, trade, tourism, agriculture, urbanization, energy, housing and national security. Environmental risks, vulnerability and variability manifest themselves in different ways and at different time scales. While there are shared global and transnational problems, each community, country or region faces its own unique environmental health problems, the solution of which depends on circumstances surrounding the resources, customs, institutions, values and environmental vulnerability.

This work will contain critical reviews and assessments of environmental health practices and research that have worked in places and thus can guide programs and economic development in other countries or regions. This work seeks to conceptualize environmental health more clearly, to describe the best available scientific methods that can be used in characterizing and managing environmental health risks, to extend the field of environmental health through new theoretical perspectives and heightened appreciation of social, economic and political contexts, and to encourage a richer analysis in the field through examples of diverse experiences in dealing with the health-environment interface.

Key Features

- Places environmental health and risks in the broader context of environmental change and associated ecological, political, social, and cultural drivers of that change

- Contains numerous examples of policy options and environmental health practices that have worked

- Includes a wide range of tools and strategies for assessing environmental health conditions, monitoring progress of intervention implementation and evaluating outcomes

Readership

The text of the articles will be written at a level that allows advanced undergraduate and post graduate students access to the material, while providing environmental health practitioners, active researchers and public and private sector employees in related disciplines with a ready resource for information in all aspects of environmental health.
