Day 1 – Parallel session – Governance frameworks to manage marine plastic pollution

Parallel session 4 – Governance frameworks to manage marine plastics

13:30 - 15:00

To be successful, solutions to marine plastic pollution must take into consideration institutional, legal and regulatory frameworks at international, regional and local levels. Consideration of these frameworks is not relevant to governments only. To be fully effective, they must be embraced and leveraged also by development actors, private industries and civil society.


​This session will discuss existing initiatives, challenges and possible paths forward to manage marine plastics, from the perspective of a state, the civil society, and research on the circular economy, in the context of South East Asia.
