The challenge of waste management and the plastic pollution is compromising the health of
people and water bodies and even threatening food security and biodiversity on land and at sea.
This has endangered life under water and high value fish stocks, on which millions of people
depend for their livelihoods hence the need to ensure responsible and sustainable plastic waste
management both in the surrounding environment and in water.
Under this project, emphasis is laid on the fact that preservation and protection of marine
resources, oceans, seas, lakes and rivers, if well harnessed can significantly improve both the
communities and the global economy.
