USAID Peer Peoples Project

Baselining Persistent and Emerging Organic Pollutant Levels in Environmental and Engineered Systems (Peoples)

Funding Agency: United States Agency for International Development (USAID)

Project Leader: Caroline Marie B. Jaraula, Ph.D.

Project Duration: November 01, 2018 to December 31, 2020


The overall project goal is to increase the number of wastewater treatment plants sampled for antibiotics analyses, then expand the sampling to point sources and into the receiving river and marine environments. This will provide baseline data to identify critical areas that will be prioritized for further data acquisition and analyses for a combined engineered and natural wastewater plan that is useful for local governments and organizations to leverage further detailed planning and application for business-government partnerships.
