EcoHealth Ontario members have contributed to the development and publication of a number of various reports which explore the evidence of ecosystem connections as well as provide examples of projects that incorporate ecohealth practices.
Leveraging the Benefits of Green Space for Environmental and Public Health Benefits
This report presents a casebook of Ontario-based initiatives that explore practices that are helping to protect and enhance green spaces.
While these projects originate in Ontario, they are not unique to this region. They can be implemented anywhere to address the same conditions which occur worldwide. The goal of this report is twofold: to figure out how to better assess the benefits of green spaces and to encourage us all to connect public health and well-being with our natural environment more effectively.
Ecohealth Ontario has also developed an EcoHealth Policy Toolkit with policy-related examples to help professionals create policies, programs and practices that create healthier communities by incorporating ecohealth practices and policies. The toolkit combines research with case studies of specific policies and program used in Ontario. More information and policy case studies can be found HERE.
