Bangkok, Thailand - On October 10th, Seureca will take part in the Bangkok Plastics Week, an event organised by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the Coordinating Body on the Seas of East Asia (COBSEA).
Seureca is the technical implementing partner of ADB for the organisation of the regional event that will be held on the 10th of October, and titled "Strategies for Plastic Waste Data Collection and Management: Foundations for National and City Action Plans." This capacity development initiative serves as a platform for learning best practices, tools, and approaches for monitoring plastic pollution and marine litter. It is designed to equip participants ─ mainly representatives from government agencies and city administrations from the region ─ with the knowledge and expertise necessary for country-specific, evidence-based actions tailored to specific country contexts.
This event is part of the larger Technical Assistance project "Promoting Action on Plastic Pollution from Source to Sea in Asia and the Pacific" implemented by Seureca for the ADB.
The event will bring together government officials from Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, the People's Republic of China, the Philippines, the Republic of Korea, Singapore, Thailand, and Viet Nam and various agencies responsible for spearheading efforts to combat plastic pollution and achieve plastic circularity. Notably, experts from renowned organizations such as WWF, the World Economic Forum (WEF), and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) will be actively participating. In addition to these organizations, technical solution providers and universities will also contribute their expertise to further the cause.
Post-workshop update coming soon
In conjunction with ADB and COBSEA, Seureca aims to pave the way for effective strategies and actions to reduce marine plastic pollution, contributing to a cleaner, more sustainable environment.
