Targeted measures to reduce plastic pollution in marine-protected areas, Cambodia

This community consultation sets out to explore context-specific targeted measures for addressing marine plastic pollution in Koh Sdach and Koh Rong Archipelagos, using qualitative approach for data collection and analysis. The findings suggest that in the absence of adequate infrastructure and SWM system in these locations, interconnected measures (such as provision of small-scale, SWM tools and facilities like bins, composting center and waste banks, provision of SUP alternatives like reusable bag and bottle, community awareness raising/training/workshop, and so forth) are needed to effectively tackle marine plastic pollution. Implementors can further capitalize on existing desirable waste -management behaviours (e.g., waste separation and/or cleaning) in order to improve and expand them within the communities.
