Decision-Making in Environmental Health: From Evidence to Action

By C. Corvalán; D. Briggs et al. | Go to book overview

indicators, both at the national and international level to inform broad-scale policy, and at the local scale in support of community- and city-level actions to improve and safeguard health.

Developing useful and effective indicators is a challenging task. Different users will have different expectations of the indicators they use, and a wide range of often competing criteria have to be met. The DPSEEA framework provides a useful means of rationalising the process of indicator design and construction. The next chapter considers the more technical issues involved in trying to apply these principles to indicator development in the area of environmental health.
