Arctic Contaminants Action Program (ACAP)
MetadataShow full item record
"Obsolete pesticides pose a risk to human health and the environment locally and globally. Many pesticides are found in the Arctic as a result of long-range transport in the atmosphere and water. The Arctic environment and indigenous peoples are often at greater risk of exposure to environmental contaminants because of changing climate conditions and local dietary habits. The Arctic Council's Arctic Contaminant Action Program (ACAP), in collaboration with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment and Northern federal subjects of the Russian Federation, performed inventories of obsolete pesticides and improved their packaging and storage conditions. To date, nearly 7000 tonnes of obsolete pesticides have been removed from old, dilapidated storages and placed in safer interim storage facilities in thirteen regions of the Russian Federation." /.../
