“Today the 26th of September 2022 is World Environmental Health Day. The theme for this day is strengthening environmental health systems for the implementation of the sustainable development goals. The International Federation of environmental health has given us a lovely background for this day. The Sustainable Development Goals, also known as the global goals, were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity now and in the future. The 17 sustainable development goals are integrated. They recognize that action in one area will affect outcomes in others and that development must balance social, economic, and environmental sustainability all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests. Environmental health plays a pivotal role in the implementation of these sustainable development goals” – Jessica Erasmus, Environmental Health Practitioner, Garden Route District Municipality.
