Reducing Pollution Through Partnership in Namibia: Reports 2022
Environmental pollution is a serious global challenge affecting the natural environment and human health. Through the Environmental Pollution Programme's scoping year, the Reducing Pollution Through Partnership (RPTP) project (2021/22), JNCC worked with partners in six pilot countries (Namibia, Angola, Mozambique, South Africa, Indonesia and Vietnam) to better understand how to tackle the issue. The Environmental Pollution Programme seeks to share expertise and best practice, investing in research to strengthen the capacity of low- to middle-income countries (LMICs) to reduce exposure to the adverse effects of pollution. Reducing the impacts of pollution will help to improve human health, whilst assisting in reversing biodiversity loss and therefore, supporting greater ecosystem resilience in the face of climate change. The Environmental Pollution Programme is a UK Official Development Assistance (ODA) pollution programme, funded by Defra and delivered by JNCC.
In Namibia, JNCC collaborated with partners at the Namibia Nature Foundation (NNF), to develop an evidence base on the specific pollution challenges experienced by Namibia within the country’s environmental and social context. This has helped to improve awareness and supported the identification of priority pollution issues.
Available here are a main evidence report, a workshop report, and an Agrochemicals in Namibia Toolkit.
