In many regions subjected to the contamination after the ChNPP accident forest products play an important role in radiation impact on the population. The decision making framework to optimise implementation of forest countermeasures in the long term after the ChNPP accident is described. The approach is based on the analysis of the main exposure pathways related to contaminated forest and application of different criteria (reduction of individual dose, cost for implementation; cost of averted dose of 1 man-Sv; secondary ecological effect and psycho-social impact) for the selection of optimal countermeasures strategies. Results of the application of the approach proposed for the study area (Novozybkov district, Russian Federation) are presented. The results emphasize the effectiveness of the application of a flexible decision support technologies for the optimization of countermeasures taking into account radioecological and economic features of contaminated forests.
