Project Summary

The goal of this project is to build a policy environment that incentivizes and de-risks waste management infrastructure investment and enables the formation of effective public-private partnerships to reduce marine litter in the Asia Pacific.  A high-level meeting is proposed for late Q3/early Q4 2017 in East Asia to accelerate implementation of a series of policy and practice recommendations that were endorsed by APEC Ministers to overcome barriers to financing waste management systems.  Individual economy action plans will be developed for select APEC economies, including through a series of planned Asia-Pacific Infrastructure Partnership meetings. The high-level meeting will also serve to increase broad stakeholder engagement and help increase available funding for waste management projects.  Improved waste management is required to substantially reduce land based sources of marine litter, and will have numerous health, economic, and environmental benefits.  The project directly addresses instructions from Leaders in 2016 to address the lack of effective waste management in the region.
