Regulating Plastics in Pacific Island Countries a guide for policymakers and legislative drafters


Next to climate change, plastics arguably represent the greatest environmental threat facing the planet today. In response, Pacific Island Countries (PICs) are working to become world leaders in the management and regulation of plastics in their region. This guide contains the policy foundations and high-level policy settings for key areas of plastics regulation.  Policymakers and legislative drafters in relevant PICs can use this guide to inform, develop and expand on laws to regulate the production, use, and disposal of plastics.
