Development of an action plan for reducing the exposure to POPs among Natives of the Russian Arctic.
This follow-up activity from 8RUS developed recommendations on consumption of the main types of traditional food products in the Russian Arctic by Indigenous Peoples to reduce POPs exposure, accounting for ethnic and cultural specifics of different Indigenous Peoples. Implementation of the recommendations in several settlements with predominantly Indigenous populations in Chukotskiy and Nenetskiy autonomous districts resulted in substantially reduced environmental contamination by persistent toxic substances.
