About the FARE Project

The project is establish to understand the environmental effects of plastics it is necessary to set this within the context of risk. The FARE project will enhance scientific knowledge and management of plastic debris in Norway by producing a toolbox for assessing the quality of macro- and microplastic exposure and effects data. This specifically designed toolbox will allow users to assess the quality of existing macro- and microplastic exposure and effects data. In doing so, the project also supports more harmonised methods by assessing the quality of methodologies and standards, and this will encourage the development and implementation of regional or global monitoring programmes such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and facilitate exchange of monitoring results.
