Key FindingsView the policy document
CaPSA is a call to coordinated action on plastics science priorities. It is designed to help all researchers and research funders understand the key plastics science needs. There was insufficient evidence available to evaluate this policy as it is too recent. CaPSA has the potential to help better inform policy development and improve the ability to track the effectiveness of actions taken in terms of plastic pollution. However, its primary aim is to investigate and collect data. Other measures would likely be required to use the data in a way that could further reduce plastic pollution (Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), 2019).

Through an analytical framework, we've reviewed over 100 plastic policies. These reviews determine the effectiveness of policies in reducing plastic pollution and we offer recommendations in light of this evidence, to enhance future policy making.
