The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a GiveWell Incubation 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. CPSP 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. GiveWell Incubation Grants are recommended by GiveWell staff, and support the development of potential future top charities.
