Risk assessment and monitoring of environmental chemicals Final Report Alan Helios Escudero Uribe Mexico
Objectives of the course • To learn about risk assessment technology and impacts on human health and ecosystem • To learn about the principles and techniques used for monitoring environmental chemicals • To gain analytical techniques and skills in instrument, immunoassay and bioassay methods
Objectives of the course • Culture • Traditions • Places
Additional Objectives Analyze case studies of environmental risk assessment Identify the key data on the studies Optimize the information requested • Time • Cost Techniques for measure pollutants • Environment • Community

My principal activities • To prepare, conduct and assess the national policy on environment and natural resources (petroleum, electricity and rail ways). • To promote and encourage the sustainable exploitation of natural resources. • To promote and encourage the environmental responsibility of productive sectors. • To oversee the legislation compliance on environment and natural resources.
My principal activities (continuation) • To stop the projects with possible environmental and natural resources deterioration. • To guarantee the integrity and operability of the components of the environmental policy within a framework of institutional improvement. • To inform the society about environmental matters and projects using natural resources.
The most relevant topics improved by these training course • All the study cases analyzed • Chisso in Minamata • Ashio cooper mine • power plant of electricity • The lectures of specific pollutants in Japan and the limits of affectation in human health. • The practices in Laboratory, mainly for the analysis where an overlapping or masking of the target compound may be found.
Let’s go into matter ACTION PLAN
Action Plan • Request the qualitative and quantitative identification of toxic compounds presents in the working areas where new projects will be started. • Request identification of persistent toxic pollutants (presents in low concentration). • Make optional to the companies, to apply monitoring techniques to make faster or less expensive the analysis of PTS (with the respective justification).
Thank you very much But what happen withtraditions and Culture?
