Indonesia Projects and Reports

Bombana, Sulawesi, Indonesia.

Country Summary

With over 200,000 Indonesians dying each year from pollution-related diseases, pollution has a huge health cost in Indonesia. From informal used lead acid batteries (ULAB)  recycling operations to artisanal gold mining, there are many sources of contamination. Pure Earth’s work in Indonesia focuses on identifying where the worst pollution is through our TSIP initiative, and then implementing solutions where possible. From training gold miners to use mercury-free techniques, to remediating a lead-contaminated soccer field where children play, Pure Earth is working in communities to improve the health and well being of children and families. Additionally, Pure Earth has partnered with regional and local governments in Kalimantan, Indonesia to develop and implement a  Health and Pollution Action Plan (HPAP).
