Management policies for priority water pollutants and their effects on foods and human health : general methodology and application to chinese river basins

Objective

The goal is to identify effective and sustainable policies for the management of surface and ground water pollutants, taking account of their relationships with food production and human health. Based on scientific methods for the evaluation of pollutant input and transport by water, of sanitation techniques, of the use of water for human needs, food production and industrial activities, and on the analysis of relationships between pollutants and human health, fuzzy logics, multicriteria decision and geographical protection zoning approaches will be applied to define priority policies for water pollutant management. The expected result is a comprehensive and rigorous methodology to define water pollution management policies. with a wide range of applicability, i.e. valid for many different river basins.
