This section of the POPs tool kit will lead you through the risk management process related to unacceptable human health risks at POPs contaminated sites.
The process presented is designed primarily to be applied on a site-by-site basis. However, it can also be expanded to develop nation-wide risk management approaches for contaminant-related issues that exist throughout a country.
After reviewing this section the reader should:
- be familiar with the process leading to the choice of risk management strategies, and
- be able to identify priority interventions to reduce risks to an acceptable level.
