About PEEM The joint WHO/FAO/UNEP/UNCHS Panel of Experts on Environmental Management for Vector Control (PEEM) was established in 198 1 to create a framework for inter-agency and inter-institutional collaboration with a view to promoting the extensive use of environmental management for disease vector control as a health safeguard in the context of land and water resources development projects and for the promotion of health through agricultural, water resources, environmental, human settlement and health programmes and projects. The collaboration originates from Memoranda of Understanding between three agencies (WHO, FA0 and UNEP) covering the areas of prevention and control of water-borne and water-associated diseases in agricultural development, rural water supply and waste water use in agriculture, forestry and aquaculture. In 1991 the three agencies were joined by UNCHS and PEEM's mandate was expanded accordingly to include human settlements, urbanization and urban environmental management including urban water supply, sanitation, drainage and solid waste disposal. The Panel's current programme consists of activities under three headings: promotion, policy modification and technical cooperation; multidisciplinary research and development; and capacity building in intersectoral decision-making.
