Indonesia Against Marine Plastic Debris
by Indonesia, Coordinating Ministry for Maritime Affairs of the Republic of Indonesia (Government)
The onslaught of marine plastic debris is a slow-motion catastrophe. Marine plastic debris is real threat to our health. We have seen results of research showing that fish and shellfish from many parts of the world consumed plastic and micro plastic. As the largest archipelagic state in the world, Indonesia is endowed with great biodiversity, rich natural resources as well as strategic and economic value that have all created blessings and challenges for Indonesians.

Against this backdrop, Indonesia, by the end 2025, will reduce 70% of its plastic debris from 2017. In this regard, Indonesia will launch its National Action Plan on Marine Plastic Debris that contains numerous strategies and concrete plans on land, on coastal areas, and at sea aimed at significantly reducing marine plastic debris as well as contributing to the national ambition on the realization of trash-free Indonesia.

Furthermore, Indonesia is also structuring a national program to address the land based management of waste over a period of four years with finance of up to one billion USD, and welcome collaboration from strategic partners in this regard.

Indonesia also will integrate the issue of Marine Plastic Debris into the curriculum of its national education.
