National Toxics Action Plan (NTAP)

The National Toxics Action Plan (NTAP) is a strategic framework spearheaded by the Blacksmith Institute and Global Alliance on Health and Pollution (GAHP). The NTAP endeavors to effectively integrate the issue of toxic pollution into national planning.  Blacksmith and member countries make use of existing toxic sites inventories, including those developed as part of the Toxic Sites Identification Program (TSIP), to prioritize pollution problems for action. Member countries draft NTAPs in a participatory process that includes various stakeholders and GAHP coordinators, including Blacksmith Institute.
