Playing our part in the global marine plastics challenge

This Environmental Bulletin provides an overview of the extent of the plastics pollution challenge, drawing on the latest scientific evidence from UNEP’s Global Assessment. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought heightened attention to this issue and also served as a multiplier in terms of impact and attracting attention. Throughout this document, several different approaches are shared which illustrate how IMCA Members have been taking practical steps to tackle this challenge.

This nine-page Bulletin looks at:
