Uzbekistan Environmental Issues:
Uzbekistan has numerous environmental issues. There is soil contamination from buried nuclear processing and agricultural chemicals, including DDT. There is water pollution from industrial wastes and the heavy use of fertilizers and pesticides, which is the cause of many human health disorders. The shrinkage of the Aral Sea has resulted in growing concentrations of chemical pesticides and natural salts. These substances are then blown from the increasingly exposed lake bed and contribute to desertification. In addition, there is increasing soil salination.
