Indonesia’s Plan of Action on Marine Plastic DebrisView the policy document
Key FindingsView the policy document
This policy proposes a move towards biodegradable plastic particularly marine biodegradable, however, there is no evidence of this type of plastic being developed so far. The plan aims to drastically reduce marine plastic waste by 70% by 2025. There has been the introduction of charges for plastic bags and river clean up initiatives such as the Citarum River clean up. Recycling rates are very low at 7% but there are some developments including using plastic for asphalt roads. The plan lacks specificity and action on basic waste collection services.
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.
