Pure Earth will be developing a Health and Pollution Action Plan (HPAP) with regional and local governments in Kalimantan, Indonesia. The goal is to provide a draft document to the government by mid 2019 in order to incorporate comments and finalize a plan soon after that can be further edited and put into action by regional and local officials. Pure Earth and its local partner, YTS, 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 impacts.
  • Establish pollution as a priority action within the agendas of the various sectors of government.
  • Define and promote specific interventions to reduce exposure to pollutants and the associated burden of disease.
