Co-authors: Dr Stephanie Borrelle & Dr Sascha Fuller
This presentation will discuss the key findings from research conducted with ten Pacific Island waste management leaders. After identifying key policy gaps and the unique challenges facing each country, the participants and the research team offer recommendations to strengthen plastic pollution policy frameworks across the region. The recommendations may be adapted for use in other Large Ocean Small Island Developing States.
