Plastic Pollution in West Asia: Challenges and Sustainable Solutions

Your substances


Plastics are ubiquitous materials used in almost every aspect of modern life. While plastics have brought numerous benefits, their excessive production, use and mismanaged waste have led to serious environmental issues. These problems encompass pollution, the deterioration of ecosystems, and potential health hazards for humans. Disturbingly, plastic waste has infiltrated all corners of our planet, from the deepest oceans to the remotest mountain ranges. 

Much like elsewhere around the world, West Asian countries are coping with growing concerns related to plastic pollution. These issues are particularly pronounced in areas where environmental governance is weak, and waste management infrastructure often proves ineffective. While West Asian countries are aware of and are actively responding to these challenges, a far more concerted effort is required to transition toward a circular economy for plastics.
