Target 14

This publication contains contributions from cities, international organizations and institutions on the themes of health and sustainable development. Perspectives on the issues are provided from the Chair of the Commission on Sustainable Development, the World Health Organization (WHO), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions (EFILWC). Examples of innovative policy making and action are mainly drawn from cities belonging to the WHO Healthy Cities project and the Ecological Cities Programme of OECD. Important issues and action at the international level are discussed. The annex includes the report of the International Healthy and Ecological Cities Congress held in Madrid 1995, from which most of the material in the book was selected.
