Short description of the organization (max 12 lines): -
Expertise offered Project objectives:
  • estimation of the role of factors of environmental comfort, i.e. risk factors influencing the health of the population of the Central Black Soil Region;
  • detection of geo-pathogenic zones increasingly hazardous for the health of the population;
  • estimation of influence of ecologically hazardous objects on environment and health of the population;
  • ecological zoning of the Central Black Soil Region territory and industrial agglomerations of large cities in accordance with the levels of environmental comfort under the conditions of intensive man-caused influence on the environment;
  • organization of monitoring of the environment and the health of the population in zones of ecological hazard;
  • development of regional ecological policies, directed at sustainable ecological and economic progress of the region and recovery of the environment of the least comfortable areas.
Problems to be solved and results:
  • creation of the electronic medical and ecological atlas of the Central Black Soil Region;
  • plan of monitoring of potentially dangerous objects of ecological hazard;
  • organization of systems of ecological safety of large industrial agglomerations in cities;
  • ecological justification of regional lay-outs of the Central Black Soil Region districts for enhancement of environmental comfort.
The implementation of the project will allow to make certain progress in the fundamental studies of the role of the environmental factors that form public health, and in more general sense - quality of life. The application in practice of the obtained results will be determined by a increased efficiency of administrative solutions in the area of regional policy on natural-resources, demography and ecology specifying the following program aspects:
  • natural-resource development;
  • regional demographic policies and future development of the populated areas;
  • ecological zoning and nature management;
  • ecological safety of large industrial agglomerations in cities;
  • recreational nature management and ecological tourism.
