Report " The Human Consequences of the Chernobyl Nuclear Accident. A Strategy for Recovery" (pdf)


In 2002 UNDP (together with UN OCHA, UNICEF and WHO) commissioned a report “Human Consequences of the Chernobyl Nuclear Accident. A Strategy for Recovery” , which proposed a new vision of tackling the problem: “rather than focusing narrowly on the issue of radioactivity, the approach should be holistic, integrating health, ecological and economic measures to address the needs of those concerned in the round to give individuals and communities control over their own future”.
