Kenya Plastic Action PlanView the policy document
Key FindingsView the policy document
This policy is a type of Extended Producer Responsibility led by industry and includes payment into a cooperative for waste management. The aims are to create a circular economy. There is currently very little waste management in Kenya and waste sorting is heavily reliant on informal waste pickers. The plan did not include a deposit return scheme which could have been very beneficial and could have produced a method of payment for informal pickers. Coca Cola have been involved in setting up this plan which has produced accusations of greenwashing and the voluntary nature of the plan has caused concern as to whether companies will act. The plan is too recent to review.
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.
