Crisis Management of Chronic Pollution : Contaminated Soil and Human Health (Hardcover)
About this item
This book deals with a long term pollution situation, generated by the former use of organochlorine pesticides. Through a study case of the chlordecone pollution in the French West Indies, the authors illustrate a global and systemic mobilization of research institutions and public services. The hope is that this "management model", together with its major results, the approach and lessons to be learned, could be useful to other situations. It gathers all the works that have carried out over the last ten years or more and links them to decision makers’ actions and stakeholders’ expectations. This reference fills a gap in the literature on chronic pollution.
