Arsenic Primer: Guidance on the Investigation & Mitigation of Arsenic Contamination


This Arsenic Primer provides information on arsenic contamination and advice to support mitigation, from testing methods to the treatment of arsenic patients, from the water sector to the health and agriculture sectors. It is intended primarily for the staff of UN agencies but is also applicable for government counterparts and field workers responding to the problem of arsenic contamination in drinking water. The Primer seeks to provide a basic understanding of all aspects of arsenic contamination and its mitigation to assist water sector professionals to develop country-specific arsenic monitoring and mitigation programmes.
