Central Asian project on obsolete pesticides

The World Bank has commissioned European consultancy Tauw for a project to clean up obsolete pesticides and persistent organic pollutants (POPs) in Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. Tauw’s consultants will train ten people in each country on drawing up an inventory and dealing with old storage sites containing the pesticides. In addition, one dumping site in each country will be inspected more closely, followed by a remediation technique, which is yet to be designed. Tauw says that large quantities of obsolete pesticides and POPs have been accumulating in the three countries over the past few decades. The Canadian government has put in €450,000 ($630,000) to finance the project.
