Addressing Marine Plastics. A Roadmap to a Circular Economy.
This document provides an action-oriented strategy by identifying a core set of priority solutions to be implemented by targeted stakeholders from the whole plastics value chain under different time horizons, and at different geographical scales. It aims to reduce the leakage of plastics into the (marine) environment as well as its associated impacts, and improve the circularity of the plastics value chain. The recommendations proposed in the Roadmap aim to reduce the adverse environmental, ecological, and socio-economic impacts from marine plastics, while transforming the linear “take-make-dispose” economy into a circular economy. This roadmap can be used as a reference by funding agencies, governments and civil society organizations to define the scope of their respective strategies on specific working areas and topics, and to facilitate and scale up the interventions on plastic pollution.
