Environment, Safety and Health


Icelanders face  challenging natural forces, both in terms of the climate and frequent natural hazards,  as is to be expected in a county so young in geological terms.

Iceland´s economic prosperity has rested on fisheries performed under dangerous conditions in northerly waters, consequently safety at sea plays an important role when striving for sustainable fisheries.

Other focus areas regarding the effects of the environment on heath include air quality and health, and the effects natural disasters may have  on physical and mental well being.
