A desktop study on the environmental and public health impact of Syria’s conflict
According to the PAX-study Amidst the Debris, the ongoing conflict in Syria is likely to have a disastrous impact on the environment and public health. Four years of fighting has left cities in rubble and caused widespread damage to industrial sites, critical infrastructure and the oil industry. Pollution from these forms of damage is likely to result in acute and chronic risks to civilians and will have a long-term impact on the environment that they depend on.
