Bridging environmental health gaps - lessons for Sub-Saharan Africa infrastructure projects : Main report (Inglês)

This study, although multisectoral, concentrates on infrastructure, with a detailed analysis on the water supply and sanitation aspects - particularly those related to waste management - to assess, and address, the importance of their environmental health dimensions in Sub-Saharan Africa. The report consists of three volumes, each one with a different emphasis. Volume 1, the main report, addresses the technical responsibility of infrastructure sector programs in the region, while engaging sector policies, and programs, to Environmental Assessments guidelines, to further provide, public health, and water resource management policies, of interest in project design. The conclusions indicate, that the contributions of infrastructure projects, toward the improvement of living conditions, and poverty alleviation, could benefit significantly, if systematic consideration is given to health improvement. Volume 2 covers a considerable cross sectoral review, and analysis, on the methodology, approach, and definitions of health, and environmental approaches, and how these differ from the traditional health aspects. While Volume 3 raises questions on the compatibility between environmental health, and sustainable development, it allows recommendations for improved Bank practices, on the treatment of environmental health issues.
