Abstract:Peter Illig argues that children are at a disproportionate risk to environmental concerns that plague communities in both the developed and developing world context. They have few legal rights to influence the structures and routines that order their daily lives, and therefore there is the need for much more awareness in health policies about how to protect children, nearly 8.5 million of whom die each year due to environmentally sourced factors.Development (2004) 47, 104108. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1100036
