Potential environmental hazards in the Caspian Sea Region

Year: 2007
From collection: Vital Caspian Graphics
Author: Philippe Rekacewicz, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Oil slicks glittering on the surface of the sea and thousands of hectares of soil penetrated by oil leaking from abandoned wells are just part of the pollution that people living around the Caspian Sea must endure. In addition there are various industries, particularly chemicals and mining, large-scale irrigated farming and untreated household waste. Combined with the effects of the oil, all these forms of pollution have a serious impact on the well-being of humans and wildlife.
