Plastic pollution challenges in marine and coastal environments: from local to global governance
journal contributionposted on 2023-05-26, 09:52 authored by Joanna VinceJoanna Vince, Hardesty, BD
Plastic pollution in the marine and coastal environment is a challenging restoration and governance issue. Similar to many environmental problems, marine plastic pollution is transboundary and therefore the governance solutions are complex. Although the marine environment is unlikely to return to the condition it was in before the plastic era,‚ÄövÑvp it is an example of an environmental restoration challenge where successful governance and environmental stewardship would likely result in a healthier global oceanic ecosystem.We argue that a holistic, integrated approach that utilizes scientific expertise, community participation, and market-based strategies is needed to significantly reduce the global plastic pollution problem.
