The forum brought together experiences and perspectives from Europe and East and Southeast Asia in terms of strategies, tools, mechanisms, and success stories in sustainable plastic production and consumption. The forum was organized under the GIZ-EU project entitled “Rethinking Plastics – Circular Economy Solutions to Marine Litter,” which supports the transition of select countries in East and Southeast Asia to a circular plastic industry with the end goal of improving resource efficiency and reduced marine litter. The project provides advisory services and pilot projects in close cooperation with regional, national, and local partners.
