Point-source contamination in Lake Titicaca - Interactive Virtual Map
To document and disseminate information on point-source contamination in Lake Titicaca, the Institute for Multi-Track Diplomacy’s Climate Change and Human Security team has built the following interactive virtual map. Pollution is both a global and local problem, and just as contaminants seep into the world’s water and soil, they poison communities and social institutions. Cataloging pollution hazards is one step towards restoration.
