Swedish term or phrase: omgivningsbeskrivningen
För att kunna beskriva hur människors hälsa påverkas är det viktigt att omgivningsbeskrivningen innehåller en fullständig beskrivning av vilka källor till föroreningar som kan leda till att riskerna förändras med projekterat förslag och andra planerade anläggningar.

Help in translating the whole sentence would be wonderful, thank you!

Explanation:
In order to describe how people's health is affected, it is important that the description of the surroundings includes a complete description of the pollutants that can cause a change of risks when there are long-term proposals and other planned facilities.

You can replace "pollution sources" with "pollutants", since a pollutant is something causing pollution, i.e. a source of pollution.

"förslag" in this context is proposal, rather than suggestion.
And perhaps you can also say "long-term proposals" for "projekterat förslag", since "projekterat" means "projected", something envisaged for the future. This is a freer translation, of course.

Explanation:
One could also use the French word "milieu", which is quite common in the academic world, but then you would have to write "a description of the milieu"
