Report

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.
