Solving Soil and Water Contamination

Contamination of soil and water in Madagascar comes from many activities including waste dumping, misuse of pesticides, and reliance on lead-based equipment. Heavily contaminated water is used for drinking, cooking, and household washing; contaminated soil forms the ground where people live, play, work, and grow food.

Solve Pollution Madagascar identifies and remediates contaminated sites causing the most harm to Malagasy health, preventing poisoning using the demonstrated toxic site identification program (TSIP) and remediation methods of Pure Earth and the proven precision toxicology process developed by Indiana University, the University of Birmingham, and other members of the Environment Care Consortium.
