Management of environmental risks from landfills in seismically active regions in the New Independent States (NIS) of Central Asia


The NISMIST Project deals with analysis and management of hazardous landfills in seismically active regions of Central Asia. Geographical Information System (GIS) will be used for analysis of dynamic response of landfills, risk analysis and management of landfills, recommendations for cost-effective remediation measures, dissemination and creation of environmental awareness. The NISMIST Project will increase local research potential through analysis and management of environmental risks associated with landfills in seismically active regions and will be mutually beneficial to partners in Europe, Russia and NIS. The outcome of this project can also be applied to seismically active zones in Europe, e.g. Greece and Turkey. The key deliverables are: 1: GIS -database of landfills in participating NIS countries: Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan. 2: Environmental risk analyses for representative landfill sites within the participating NIS countries. 3: A Partner Program me for young (under 35 years old) NIS scientists to work abroad with their project colleagues. 4: Recommendations for remediation measures and waste management strategies. 5: A series of local dissemination events and a final, international project symp osium.
