Environmental Justice: Listening to women and children

HEAL and the Center for Environmental Policy and Law (CEPL), a HEAL member, launched a new report “Making the Case for Environmental Justice in Central and Eastern Europe” accompanied by this brochure on "Environmental justice: Listening to Women and Children".

The brochure defines while poor and minority populations suffer disproportionate exposure to environmental harms and access to environmental benefi ts, women and children within those groups tend to suffer the most. Environmental justice, while focusing on discrimination against certain groups, requires an especially keen and focused consideration of women and children.
