    Abstract The arsenic pollution crisis in Bangladesh is a disaster of unprecedented proportions. The number of people potentially impacted by this problem (some 28-35 million) is more than that for any of the individual crises facing the humanity today. By the virtue of its sheer size, it is pushing the limits of our knowledge and the capacity to respond to it. It is a complex problem that is multi-faceted and multi-sectoral. It requires clear thinking and a comprehensive strategic response. This strategy should be cohesive and cover all aspects of the problem. The actions under such a strategy should be clearly divided into emergency measures that take effect right away and long-term tasks that work gradually over the next few years.
