Summary

This project is supported by the European Commission under the 6th framework Program (Project number SSPE-CT-2003-501997). It is a Specific Targeted Research Project (STREP) for scientific support of policies with a budget of 2.7 million Euros. The project has started January 2003 and will be finished in March 2007.
The aim of this project:
The project will support Community policies for sustainable agriculture by providing a harmonised European approach for indicators of the overall risk of pesticides.
It will integrate European scientific expertise on the use, emissions and environmental fate of pesticides and their impact on agro-ecosystems and human health.
The indicators will provide new and powerful assessment tools for monitoring and managing the overall risks of pesticides. This will contribute directly to Agenda 2000 aims for sustainable agriculture, and to the 6th Environment Action Programme’s Thematic Strategy on the Sustainable Use of Plant Protection Products.
The expectations of the project:
The main deliverable of the project is a set of harmonised environmental and human health risk indicators, implemented in an easy to use software package.
The proposed tool will include methods to predict environmental fate and exposure, and the resulting acute and chronic risks:
• for aquatic and terrestrial organisms,
• for groundwater,
• for public health (including pregnant women) and
• for applicators of the pesticides.
Databases will be developed for pesticide use, agricultural practice, land use, GIS information and ecotoxicological data. State-of-the-art methods (including the methods used in legislative processes) will be used to extrapolate from test animals to humans and wildlife.
The project will use existing data sets to systematically evaluate the validation status of the indicators, including information gathered by regional and national organisations.
What are the characteristics of the output of this project
The indicator outputs will be available on different scales, providing high resolution results at the catchment and/or /regional level, taking account of local conditions of soil, climate etc; and also aggregated and integrated results at the European level.
