Pure Earth has initiated a Health and Pollution Action Plan (HPAP) with the government of Colombia. The team hosted meeting in June 2018 with government agencies on prioritizing issues in health and pollution. Pure Earth will provide continued support for implementation of recommended policies and programs, and for proposal drafting after the reports are validated.
The HPAP is a collaborative process that aims to help governments:
- Identify, evaluate and prioritize the main existing contamination problems based on health
- Establish pollution as a priority action within the agendas of the various sectors of
- Define and promote specific interventions to reduce exposure to pollutants and the
associated burden of disease.
