A Blacksmith study estimates that industrial decontamination projects in the developing world cost $1 to $50 per year of life gained, compared to $35 to $200 for malaria control or clean water supplies. 

The Institute estimates that it might cost as little as $500 million to clean up the worst of the world's most polluted cities. Clean-ups are underway in some places, thanks in part to groups like Blacksmith, but in far too many nations there's little government money for environmental protection, and industrial pollution remains a low priority for international funding.
