Abstract: In 2010, the comprehensive European environment state and outlook report (EEA, 2010d) showed that environmental policies have delivered substantial progress in improving the state of the environment in Europe. However, it also stressed that major environmental challenges remain. Water and air pollution have declined but not enough to achieve good ecological quality in all water bodies or to ensure good air quality in all urban areas. Widespread exposure to multiple pollutants and chemicals and concerns about long-term damage to human health together imply the need for more integral and precautionary approaches. Given the complex links between environmental challenges, identification of environmental risks to human health and well-being should go beyond immediate and individual health impacts of a few well-known stressors. Multiple exposures, long-term impacts, inequalities and resource use patterns should also be addressed. It is in this context that this EEA-JRC reference report on Environment and Health has been produced. It tries to capture the most pertinent environmental problems and their policy implications, as identified and addressed in on-going work at the JRC and EEA.
