A coordinated digital response to plastic wastes: The Global Plastics Policy Inventory

The Plastics Policy Inventory is an online public digital depository of plastics policy documents dating as far back as 2000 and is free to all. This inventory is easily searchable by topics, locations, and years, with the option to download documents for reading at users’ own time.

An accompanying report, 20 Years of Government Responses to the Global Plastic Pollution Problem, also provides assessments of the plastic pollution policy landscape over the last two decades, looking at trends and gaps in implementation and identifying effective policies throughout that time period. Together, these resources have proven useful to various researchers, advocacy groups, program implementers, and policymakers.
