NIVA and MGC are leading the EDIFY project; the objectives of this project are to conduct a comprehensive assessment of exposure of the Indian population to endocrine disrupting substances (EDS) through the diet (food and drinking water). EDIFY would also assess climate and anthropological drivers controlling levels of EDS in drinking water and agricultural products and identify sound risk reduction measures and management options for reducing exposure to EDS. This would establish a knowledge-based fundament for the development of sustainable policies on EDS, with an emphasis on vulnerable populations. This would also examine opportunities of reducing the presence of EDS in agricultural, dairy, poultry, drinking water sectors, and would draw science-based policy recommendations for the Government of India. TERI, SRM University, Toxics Link and Bharat Learn are the other partners of the project.
