Each year, World Environment Day provides us with an opportunity to highlight our ongoing efforts to combat environmental challenges. This year, under the theme “Solutions to plastic pollution”, we are featuring our most recent contributions to combat this escalating crisis.
Plastic pollution is a pressing issue with far-reaching consequences. Plastics, being non-biodegradable, persist in the environment for centuries, posing risks to animals and degrading freshwater and marine ecosystems including rivers, lakes and oceans.
At UNEP-DHI, we are committed to address plastic pollution using innovative approaches and collaborative initiatives, that safeguard ecosystems and promote sustainable practices. Here are three ways that the Centre is providing solutions to plastic pollution:
Through stakeholder engagement, provision of digital resources, data collection efforts, and capacity development initiatives, we continue to support positive change. Together, we can make a difference in combatting plastic pollution, protecting our ecosystems, and building a sustainable future for generations to come.
