Blacksmith Institute, Inc.
November 9, 2012

In the developing world the legacy of contaminated and abandoned industrial sites poses serious health risks to local populations, especially children, and also threats to the environment and water sources. Once a contaminated site is abandoned nobody seems to own the property or deal with the problem and in the majority of cases neither the local authorities or national governments have the resources or the expertise to remediate the sites and dispose of the contaminated soil or waste materials in a safe and responsible manner. And yet these are the very issues that the Blacksmith Institute tackles on a global basis, sometimes working alone, but often with other international agencies and experts. Furthermore, the Blacksmith Institute also ensures that local communities are either fully involved in any "Clean Up" operation or are aware of the remediation work and how to avoid any further contamination once the project is complete..............
