Extension Guidelines for Pest/ Vector Management in Human Habitations
The National Institute of Agricultural Extension Management (a unit under the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare), Government of India, Hyderabad recently published a book entitled “Extension Guidelines for Pest/ Vector Management in Human Habitations”, looking at the zoonotic diseases transmitted by various common vector groups. The book has 14 chapters contributed by renowned experts in their fields of specialization having experience of around 30 years. The book is being circulated to all Public Health Departments, Local bodies and other extension agencies for adoption of simple and real time operational procedures (SOPs) for containing the vectors as well as pests in common human habitations. Although emphasis was given for Indian conditions, most of the management techniques would be common in other countries also.

Compendium of Inspiring Practices: Health Edition International Guidelines on Urban and Territorial Planning
This collection of 20 case studies gives practical information to those involved in city planning on how to address the issues encountered with an approach that puts peoples’ health at the centre of design. The main purpose of gathering such information is to illustrate concretely what is needed in order to apply the key principles of the International Guidelines on Urban and Territorial Planning that were approved by UN-Habitat’s Governing Council in 2015, and the benefits that will be gained by doing so. The examples in this Health Edition are those that actively contribute to human health through the improvement of the built and natural environment. Exploring the relationship between health and planning creates opportunities for more integrated planning practices and strengthens both the health and planning disciplines. These inspiring examples, and the lessons learned from them, will motivate all actors to include health into urban policies and city strategies.
