Radioactive, chemical and biological hazards in Central Asia

Year: 2006 Author: Philippe Rekacewicz, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
The Soviet development model for Central Asia was based on building large-scale irrigation schemes enabling the region to become a major cotton producer and expanding the mining and processing industry. Industrial operations in the region paid little attention to the environment and public health, resulting in the accumulation of pollutants in the local environment. Today, not only active industrial facilities constitute a threat to environment, and often to security as well, so does the legacy of past operators.
