Removing barriers to scale-up solutions to end plastic waste in the Indo-Pacific – Hybrid Session

November 22, 2022 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Plastic waste is a global issue. Mismanaged plastic waste can have a detrimental effect on our environment, health and the economy.

Within the Indo-Pacific region, it is estimated there are between five and ten billion pieces of plastic on the coastline.

To turn the tide on plastic pollution and advance a circular economy, it is crucial to enhance stakeholder collaboration, leverage existing investment, attract new sources of funding, and boost innovation capabilities to tackle plastic waste and translate them into real world solutions across the region.

This panel discussion will bring together a group of experts and entrepreneurs to share perspectives on some of the challenges and opportunities to scale-up solutions across the Indo-Pacific.
