Project Scope
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Research and Development (ORD) has been working to create programs and examining applications in a variety of areas in order to better incorporate sustainability. To further strengthen the analytic and scientific basis for sustainability as it applies to human health and environmental protection, an ad hoc committee under the Science and Technology for Sustainability Program (STS) will conduct a study and prepare a report that will answer the following questions.

-- What should be the operational framework for sustainability for EPA?
-- How can the EPA decisionmaking process rooted in the risk assessment/risk management (RA/RM) paradigm be integrated into this new sustainability framework?
-- What scientific and analytical tools are needed to support the framework?
-- What expertise is needed to support the framework?

This project is sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

The approximate start date for the project is November 10, 2010.

Project Duration: 12 months
