Report

This summary of Plastic Waste Poisons Indonesia's Food Chain provides an overview of the alarmingly high levels of dioxins as a result of plastic incineration. These dioxins are poisoning food networks and the environment. The plastics being incinerated are being imported along with waste papers into Indonesia and other countries, and in Tropodo and Bangun are being used to fuel steam generators used to make tofu.

Durante el mes de septiembre del año 2019, se visitaron 8 parques con juegos infantiles en los municipios de Zapopan y Guadalajara en el estado de Jalisco, México.  

En cada parque se examinaron los juegos infantiles encontrados: columpios, casitas, trenes, juegos para trepar, changueros, sube y bajas, resbaladillas etc. Se documentaron sus colores, estado físico de desgaste de las superficies pintadas y su tipo de sustrato.

In August 2019, 10 playgrounds in Penang and Kedah states in Malaysia were visited. In each playground, painted play equipment (e.g., climbing bars and frames, posts, railings, ramps, rockers, see-saws, slides, swings, etc.) were examined and physical details, e.g., colour of painted surface, substrate type (metallic, wooden, plastic, fiberglass, etc.), and the condition of painted surface (new, old, visible chipping off or flaking) were observed and documented.

Between September and October 2019, the Nexus3 team visited 32 playgrounds in Jakarta, Indonesia. In each playground, painted play equipment (e.g., climbing bars and frames, posts, railings, ramps, rockers, see-saws, slides, swings, etc.) were examined and physical details, e.g., colour of painted surface, substrate type (metallic, wooden, plastic, fibreglass, etc.), including the condition of painted surface (new, old, visible chipping off or flaking) were documented.

On 30 September 2019, EARTH visited Benjakitti Park and Lumphini Park located in Bangkok City, Thailand, and screened the playground equipment for lead content. In each playground, painted play equipment (e.g., climbing bars and frames, posts, railings, ramps, rockers, see-saws, slides, swings, etc.) were examined and physical details, e.g., color of painted surface, substrate type (metallic, wooden, plastic, fiberglass, etc.), and the condition of painted surface (new, old, visible chipping off or flaking) were documented.

From September to October 2019, 14 playgrounds located in 10 cities and one municipality in Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao and the National Capital Region, Philippines were visited. In each playground, painted play equipment (e.g., climbing bars and frames, posts, railings, ramps, rockers, see-saws, slides, swings, etc.) were examined and physical details, e.g., color of painted surface, substrate type (metallic, wooden, plastic, fiberglass, etc.), and the condition of painted surface (new, old, visible chipping off or flaking) were documented.

This report presents findings of a study conducted by Centre for Environment Justice and Development (CEJAD) between December 2018 and January 2019 with support from IPEN. The purpose of the project study was to develop a country situation report on pesticides management, and promote the phase out of Highly Hazardous Pesticides (HHPs) and the use of alternative, non-chemical approaches such as agro-ecology in agricultural practices in Kenya.

This report relates to Sustainable Development Goals 2, 3, 6, 8, 12, 13, 14 and 15.

Aligned to the IPEN Strategy to phase out HHPs in Africa, this report by the Centre de Recherche et d'Education pour le Développement documents the list of HHPs registered and being used in Cameroon using Pesticide Action Network’s HHPs criteria, in addition to the Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO) – World Health Organization (WHO) criteria in the definition and identification of HHPs; the list of pesticides homologated for importation and use in Cameroon; and the pesticide registration process.
