Managing Plastic Waste in India: An agenda for action

Omnipresent: it is a term which best illustrates plastics and plastic waste. Almost 79 per cent of all plastics manufactured in the world ends up as waste in landfills or in the environment, choking our land and our waterbodies, including oceans and seas, and eventually entering our bodies with the food that we eat. We had believed that we had almost tackled the plastic problem ± as long as people did not use single-use products, segregated and recycled it, or destroyed the waste. But that bubble has burst. The problem remains. Persistent, nagging, and as damaging as ever.

CSE's latest publication Ð Managing plastic waste in India: Challenges and agenda Ð is our first comprehensive attempt to understand and document the problem, and the gaps that need to be filled. We invite you to a webinar with some of India's key dedicated bureaucrats and experts for a discussion on this subject. The report will be officially released during the webinar.

We look forward to seeing you.

Please note: This is a free webinar, and registration is open to all. All those who register will receive an automatic confirmation. Howwever, the webinar can accommodate a limited number of attendees on a first come-first served basis only. Therefore, please try to join 5 minutes before the scheduled time.
