Palau students address plastic pollution in the marine environment

Suva

Healthy marine ecosystems have the capacity to adapt to climate change. Today, plastic pollution is one of the greatest threats to the health of our ocean worldwide. At least 14 million tons of plastic end up in the ocean every year. This affects food security, human health and marine biodiversity. Since 2019, the European Union funded Global Climate Change Alliance Plus – Scaling up Pacific Adaptation (SUPA) project has been working with national agencies and partners in Palau to scale up a previous initiative to address coastal pollution and at the same time instil a sense of environmental stewardship amongst youth and citizens.
