Regional action plans on marine litter

The Regional Seas Conventions and Action Plans are instrumental in supporting the implementation of the GPA at regional levels and have developed, or are in the process of developing, regional sea action plans on marine litter. The regional plans take into account the environmental, social and economic situation of each regional sea and they vary in the detail and extent of actions recommended to the states (UNEP, 2016a). While, for example, in the Mediterranean the strategic framework includes legally binding measures, the regional action plans for the Baltic and North Atlantic are built around a set of fundamental principles and, similar to the G7 Action Plan, a series of regional and national actions to address land-based and sea-based sources, priority removal actions and priority actions on education, research and outreach. Otherwise in the Pacific marine debris has been identified as a priority area in the broader Pacific Regional Waste and Pollution Management Strategy 2015–2016.
