A recent UKIEG report “Healthy Indoor Environments: Challenges and Opportunities for Policy Makers” summarises discussions at a policy workshop held at the Department of Health, (Skipton House, London) with support from the Gas Safety Trust, Policy Connect and Professor the Baroness Finlay of Llandaff.
Recognising the cross-cutting nature of healthy indoor environments, and the significant challenges in achieving policy coordination, the UKIEG organised and facilitated a one-day workshop, which washeld on 14th July 2016. The meeting brought together 15 attendees from different Government Departments, Agencies, All-Party Parliamentary Groups and sponsor organisations. The discussions addressed:
- Issues and priorities from the perspectives of different government departments and agencies;
- Opportunities and challenges presented in addressing this issue;
- Whether better coordination might be required and, if so, how this could be achieved.
The report provides a number of recommendations and is available to download below.
