National Marine Litter Management Action Plan

News & Blog

The Action plan provides pathways and identifies an agreed road map on which Kenya will ensure how waste is properly managed (prevention, reduction, sustainable management, circular economy, enhanced research, awareness, and data dissemination) to ensure it does not reach marine ecosystems that are a livelihood, especially to coast and lake region counties. The plan is designed to be a flexible tool that guides stakeholders and provides a framework for cooperation to combat marine litter.
The plan identifies 8 principles to guide its implementation by pivoting the precautionary principle, the polluter pays principle, integration, the prevention principle, the ecosystem approach, public participation and stakeholder involvement, sustainable consumption and production, and the best available knowledge and socio-economic effectiveness.
