Visit to arsenic affected communities in India

In collaboration with the University of New South Wales and Burdwan University, we recently visited West Bengal (Bangladesh’s neighbouring region in India). It revealed very similar problems with the resolution of the arsenic crisis. The small-scale arsenic removal plant in the photo has been abandoned because no local arrangements were made to take care of maintenance.
