To prevent mismanagement of plastics waste from reaching beaches and the marine environment, the investment of litter booms, traps, and other technological solutions is and still a priority.


Alliance and partnership development
Collection of baseline and monitoring data and knowledge
Education, training and other capacity development activities
Scale of implementation
Phase of solution
Planning phase
Inception phase

Enabling factors

The litter booms and traps work efficiently when staff have been trained on the installation as well as maintenance including working with communities to manage waste at source to prevent river pollution.

Lessons learned

  • Infrastructure maintenance is at the core of development.
  • Training and capacity building should be continuous.
  • Community engagement must be at the core of management.
