Colombia - Circular Plastics

Based on extensive stakeholders assessments and a detailed plastics value chains analysis performed during the inception phase, and in support of Colombia’s Plastics Plan, prioritized activities in Colombia are related to preventive measures and effective plastic waste management tools, with the main objective of showcasing and sharing technologies and innovations (based on examples and cases from the EU), supporting relevant policies for the transition towards production and use of plastics compatible with the circular economy, and support the awareness of the main parties involved in the plastic value chain, to explore solutions to prevent the pollution of rivers and oceans with plastic litter.
