Priority Markets

Country-specific workstreams will be developed in mature and transitional markets to enable the implementation of optimal waste management systems on the ground. This commitment will include launching national-level pilots to test the combination of different collection models to optimise recycling systems. The ultimate goal will be to ensure no plastic leaks into nature while promoting safety and equity for both formal and informal waste workers. The workstreams will operate in close collaboration with local organisations, initiatives and stakeholders to ensure that relevant and specific actions are adapted to their local contexts. Future pilots are intended to accelerate collaboration efforts between the retail/manufacturer sector and local governments. Currently, the Coalition has workstreams focused on engagement in Canada, Indonesia, and Mexico.
