A unique tool for businesses, entrepreneurs and civil society organizations in the Med Region
to take action
This new publication released by UN Environment/MAP - SCP/RAC, and with technical contribution by Coastal & Marine Union (EUCC), intends to inspire and provide practical indications to implement marine litter solutions in the Mediterranean region.
SCP/RAC and SwitchMed support entrepreneurs and CSOs to take action through technical assistance and seed funding. These solutions not only would benefit the environment in the MENA region, but also provide socio-economic development.
The “25 innovative and inspiring solutions to combat plastic marine litter in the Mediterranean Region” publication is conceived as a practical tool for entrepreneurs and CSOs to identify the best solution for their context and be guided toward its successful implementation.
The 25 solutions have been prioritized through a multi-criteria analysis of their effectiveness and replicability in the MENA region. They have been grouped following the different stages of the product-to-waste chain.
A French version of the publication is also available here.
