Support to the “Cities Combatting Plastic Entering the Marine Environment (CCP-ME)” project for advisory services and process monitoring



Marine litter is a problem at global scale, threatening ecosystems, fishery and tourism industries around the globe. The issue has taken a prominent place on national and international agendas resulting in numerous conventions and ambitious goals, which, however, often remain to be translated into solutions at local level where end of pipe measures prevail (e.g. beach clean-ups), etc. India remains one of the biggest plastic producing countries with a plastic processing industry that is expected to reach 22 million tonnes per year by 2020” (ToR).



Project description


The CCP project focuses on marine litter prevention in cities situated in coastal areas, island situations or along rivers together with Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA). The objective of the project is to prevent plastic waste at source through sustainable waste management practices in cities by upgrading infrastructure, strengthening digital monitoring and exchange mechanisms and supporting the development of national framework conditions.


The project should outcome enhanced practices (incl. digital tools) to prevent plastic entering the marine environment, which will be established in selected cities, states and at national level.
