Environmental Health and Risk Assessment


Most socio-environmental and public health impacts of importing and exporting processes are invisible to consumers in importing countries and to the international exporters of waste. EJOLT aims to expose new trends in toxic international trade and the roles that emerging economies like Brazil and India play in this field. This work will build on the work in EJOLT done on nuclear, mining & shipbreaking, oil & gas, and biomass & land. We will support participant Environmental Justice Organisations in their knowledge acquisition and in their actions related to health impacts, with emphasis on risk assessment and issues of uncertainty.
