Project Summary

This project is under the Virtual Working Group on Marine Debris, which is jointly endorsed by the Chemical Dialogue (CD) and Oceans and Fisheries Working Group (OFWG).

The goal of the project is to demonstrate the feasibility of a range of interventions to prevent used plastic in APEC economies from becoming “plastic marine debris ”through a pilot project in at least two “beta site” cities. The lessons learned will guide efforts to similarly assist cities around the wider APEC region.  In the beta sites, priority will be on design and establishment of fundamental waste management systems and infrastructure, which are the essential building blocks for  all waste management. This project contributes to APEC’s efforts to both address marine debris and to promote sustainable urbanization.  Successful pilot projects will not only prevent used plastic from becoming marine debris, , but also generate jobs, improve public health, and create economic growth.  The multi-year pilot projects would include obtaining high level political commitments; generate analytics required for the design of a detailed action plan; and develop innovative “delivery labs” designed to focus on  integration and support of all relevant governmental agencies and finance providers. This complete roadmap would then be submitted for formal endorsement.
