Antimicrobial resistance in the environment


Report no: 2022: 28

Published: 13.10.2022

Key message:

We need more knowledge regarding antimicrobial resistance in the environment, and its possible risk for the health of humans and animals.

Monitoring of antimicrobial resistance in the environment contributes to such knowledge. This is the main message in a self-initiated report from VKM.

Monitoring of antimicrobial resistance in the environment in Norway should focus on the effects of human activity. The program should also interact with and support corresponding international initiatives.

In the report, VKM also presents the most important uncertainties and knowledge gaps.

The report has been approved by the Panel on Microbial Ecology.
