Pure Earth has initiated a Health and Pollution Action Plan (HPAP) with the government of Madagascar. In December 2018, Pure Earth delivered a draft of the HPAP document to the Madagascar government. Pure Earth will provide continued support for implementation of recommended policies and programs, and for proposal drafting after the reports are validated. A pilot cleanup project is being planned.

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.
