Reducing Pollution Through Partnership in Angola 2022

Atmosphere Freshwater Terrestrial Human Activities Pressures International Pollution

Abstract

Environmental pollution is a serious global challenge affecting the natural environment and human health. Through the Reducing Pollution Through Partnership (RPTP) programme, JNCC worked with partners in six pilot countries (Namibia, Angola, Mozambique, South Africa, Indonesia and Vietnam), during a one-year scoping project (2021/22) to better understand how to tackle the issue. The RPTP 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 Reducing Pollution Through Partnership (RPTP) is a UK Official Development Assistance (ODA) pollution programme, funded by Defra and delivered by JNCC.

In Angola, JNCC collaborated with partners in Angola at EcoAngola and EcoJango, to develop an evidence base on the specific pollution challenges experienced by Angola 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 and a workshop report.

Further information about the Reducing Pollution Through Partnership programme can be found on the RPTP webpage.
