The ‘Mitigating Marine Plastic Debris in Vietnam’ project from WWF Germany aims to achieve long-term reductions to marine litter input in Vietnam.
A number of measures are being introduced to reduce the flow of plastic waste into the Caribbean Sea from the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica and Columbia.
The ‘Circular Economy Solutions Preventing Marine Litter in Ecosystems’ (CES) project aims to work together with the Indian Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEFCC) to demonstrate technological approaches for the tracking and monitoring of waste in marine ecosystems.
The project is concentrating on reducing marine litter in the cities of Kochi, Kanpur and Port Blair, which are located in coastal regions, on islands or along rivers in close collaboration with the Indian partner institution, the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA).
The project is carried out by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and aims to provide needs-based advice to the Federal Ministry for the Environment (BMUV), taking into account the national and international discourse surrounding the fight against marine litter.
