Aims & Objects

 

of the Network

Aims

· To make a significant contribution to reducing the environmental problems associated with contaminants in soils, ground and surface water, and food in India by effective research and development by the scientists in the country.

· The activities of the Network will assist individuals and institutions in sharing their expeñences in reducing contaminant problems by carrying out high quality research and ensuring that the results are presented to regional, national and international decision- makers for effective development and implementation of appropriate environmental, industrial, health, agricultural, economic and social policies and strategies.

Objects

A.  To assess the skills and techniques available in the country for determining the composition, quantities, sources and fate of contaminants enteñng soils and waters for their remediation and inter alia to determine research pñoñties for further work in this area.

B. To identify and quantify the processes determining the movement and pathways of contaminants enteñng soils, plants, water and air in the region.

C. To assess the types and amounts of contaminants in food in the region resulting from plant growth on contaminated land, and to identify the sources of such contaminants.

D. To contribute, where appropriate, to investigations of the ecological effects and the human and animal health impacts of contaminated land and water, including the consumption of foods produced on contaminated land.

E. To contribute to the study of the effects of soil and water contamination on engineering structures, buildings and their interiors.

F. To investigate and recommend appropriate regional remediation measures and technologies for contaminated soils and water supplies.

G. To advise governments and others on the results and the likely implications of the completed research and to assist them in the development of remedial measures to address the identified problems.

H. To work with regional governments on the development of short and long-term measures to reduce the contamination of soils and water resources and the potential impacts on food supplies and exportable commodities.

I. To assist governments in the region in the development of policies and strategies for reducing the social, economic and health impacts of contaminated soils and waters.
