The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $1,336,409 to the Centre for Pesticide Suicide Prevention (CPSP) to start work aimed at reducing deaths from deliberate ingestion of pesticides. This is a GiveWell Incubation Grant that was recommended by GiveWell staff and is designed to support the development of a potential future top charity.
CPSP is a new organization focused on preventing deaths from pesticide poisoning. It plans to use these funds to begin collecting data on pesticide suicides in Nepal and India with the aim of assisting governments in enacting bans on the most lethal pesticides currently used in suicide attempts.
