Seychelles - Circularity Assessment Protocol : Plastic Leakage Results and Recommendations - A Report to the World Bank (English)

This report documents the work conducted by the center for circular materials management in the New Materials Institute at the University of Georgia in an agreement with the World Bank. Background information and a literature review was conducted from February 2019 to June 2019. Field work was conducted March 25 through April 5 in the Seychelles. The work presented here supports the strengthening of the baseline data on plastic use (packaging) and leakage and provides related recommendations to the government. This issue is directly associated with the social and behavior aspects of use and disposal by local communities which will facilitate policies and interventions specifically targeted at behavioral change. The data presented here informs actions and policies. Additionally, this work can help to raise awareness in the community and government on the issue of plastic waste management and leakage and support the longer-term global objective of reducing plastic leakage.
