Community Solutions for Reducing Marine Litter

Status: Active
Operational Plan: 2019 - 2020

Marine litter is a global problem that affects economies, ecosystems and potentially, human health. This project builds on the low-technology approach adapted from the Trash-Free Waters framework. The project supports marine litter mitigation efforts across North America by building the capacity of decision-makers and organizations and replicating successful multi-stakeholder approaches in other communities and watersheds. It aims to increase awareness in coastal and inland communities of the connections between consumer behavior and solid waste management practices upstream, and marine litter prevention downstream.
