Food and health security in the Norwegian, Russian and Finnish border regions: linking local industries
Date du début: 23 oct. 2012, Date de fin: 30 mai 2015 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

The objective of the project is to assess industrial impact on food safety and human health in highly populated Norwegian, Finnish, and Russian border region specified in the Kolarctic ENPI CBC 2007-2013 Programme. Integration of contaminant results with monitoring of key human health endpoints can be implemented in future human risk assessments and food safety management. Assessment of results will be communicated to stakeholders within participating countries (i.e., general public, government, and industry) where both the socio-economic benefits of increased industrial activity will be weighed against potential food safety and human health risks. Achievements: The amount of data produced is impressive and has provided material for a large number of publications. The results of this project bring valuable new information about the consequences of local emissions of pollution in terms of geographical distribution, impacts on human concentrations of contaminants and locally harvested foods. The investigation of different food like different berries, fish and game yielded information on which species and which contaminants should be monitored in the future. The geographical differences also provide invaluable information on the areas where certain compounds monitoring should be targeted, and which food items should be included in the monitoring. The project has also provided opportunities to perform further complex risk assessments of different pollutants such as toxic metals, persistent organic pollutants and radioactive substances from the same samples.
