The International Federation of Environmental Health has declared 26 September 2018 as World Environmental Health Day.

This year’s WEHD theme of ‘Global Food Safety and Sustainability’ aims to support the provision of more safe food, to make use of precious water and nutrient resources, and for communities to increasingly value sustainable food production.
