Searching for safe arsenic-free water in Bangladesh

Bangladesh: Traces of Poison in Water

Enormous progress has been made in Bangladesh where poisonous arsenic was found in well water across the country, but more still needs to be done to help the people there.

 Both the United Nations and the World Bank have been providing assistance to programmes that identify clean safe water sources.

The UN's International Atomic Energy Agency has even been using nuclear techniques to identify arsenic in the water, so villagers will know which wells are safe and which are not.
