Abstract

Integrated Environmental Health Impact Assessment (IEHIA) can be considered as an element in the third phase of environmental risk management.

This paper emphasises some differences and difficulties in the integration across professional paradigms and scientific fields, across stakeholder perspectives and differences in impact indicators that emanate from these different fields and paradigms.
