MetadataShow full item record
"The project "Persistent Toxic Substances, Food Security and Indigenous Peoples of the Russian North" has been initiated by the Indigenous Peoples Organizations — Permanent Participants of the Arctic Council and the Secretariat of the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP) as a follow-up of the conclusion of the 1st AMAP Assessment Report that some Arctic indigenous communities are among the most exposed groups of population in the World to persistent toxic substances. This initiative has been supported by the Global Environment Facility (GEF), in particular its UNEP Coordination Unit, practically all countries-members and observers of the Arctic Council, as well as by a number international organizations. Without their political, substantial financial and technical support, implementation of this exclusive work would not be feasible. The project has been fulfilled mostly by Russian institutions and experts, with the organizational support from the relevant Russian federal governmental executive bodies and the local administrations of the regions of the Russian Federation. At the same time, active participation of a number of international experts in all stages of the project, from drafting the project proposal to the compilation of its conclusions and recommendations and development of the dissemination strategy, was important for its success. Close collaboration of the project team with the AMAP Human Health Expert Group was a necessary step for making its outcomes consistent with the circumpolar assessment work being made in all Arctic states under the auspices of AMAP.Wide participation of the Russian Association of the Indigenous Peoples of the North, Siberia and Far East (RAIPON) and its regional branches in the project should be specifically highlighted." /.../
