Newsletter Volume 2 – May 2014
After a long gap, we bring out the second volume of the Arsenic Network Newsletter. Since the last volume of the newsletter, the Network has gone deeper into understanding the arsenic issues in Assam. We have had meetings with the PHED and Health Department in Assam and have also interacted closely with the academic circles there. Mr. A.B. Paul (Retd. Chief Engineer, PHED) helped us greatly in connecting with people and identifying issues from the ground. We now see Assam as one of the regional hubs for Network activities in the future as will be illustrated though the activities marked out in detail in this newsletter. Further, we do have plans to expand the work of the network to other areas like Bihar, West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh, etc. For furthering the Arsenic Networks agenda within your state for possible knowledge, action or advocacy interventions, please do get in touch with us.
