The GPCPE project carries the vision of a future shared in-depth understanding of the extent and nature of chemical pollution in the world.
Tens of thousands of naturally or synthetically produced chemicals are available on the world market. Increase in their use, in terms of volume and structural diversity, is a result of rapid global economic growth in the past decades. Poor regulation and inadequate risk assessment and management strategies have led to widespread contamination that directly impacts ecosystems and public health.

Chemical pollution in the world
The chemical pollution of the planet and of its inhabitants is an issue probably as threatening to our civilisation as the climate change. Its diffuse nature however makes it difficult to assess and address as one global concern. That awareness is increasingly growing and the GCPCE initiative is taking part in it.
The GPCPE project is an initiative of the Water Academy of France, address:
