Regional and global programmes and initiatives that address Marine Litter

Sventy to eighty-five per cent of Marine Litter within the Wider Caribbean Region, is from land-based sources of solid waste. Marine Litter is now one of three priority pollutants that are being targeted for  improved management. This threatens livelihoods especially through economic losses to the tourism, shipping and fishing sectors. The impact of marine pollution also poses risks to human health, and the beauty of the Caribbean islands and coastal communities.
