Turkey | HEAL Launches Toolkit for a “healthy energy” future

2016.02.15 Turkey Toolkit15 February 2016 — The Health and Environment Alliance (HEAL), the Healthy Energy Initiative’s Europe partner, has launched a new toolkit on coal power generation and health in Turkey. The aim is to support local health professionals and community groups engaged in initiatives to prevent new coal power plants from being built.

The toolkit entitled “Coal power generation and health in Iskenderun Bay, Turkey” (1) focuses on south-eastern Turkey which is already an industrial hot spot. The pollution from 16 new coal plants in the pipeline would greatly increase the already existing health burden.
