Plastic Production in SIDS: Case Studies of Five Small Island Developing States

Recognizing the need to address the growing global plastics crisis, the international community has begun the process of developing an international legally binding instrument on plastic pollution, which has the potential to impact domestic activities surrounding plastic production. Up until now, however, there has been a notable lack of information on the role that Small Island Developing States (SIDS) play in plastic production.

This research paper aims to develop a deeper understanding of the role of the plastic production industry and the national policies or regulatory measures impacting plastic production in SIDS through a case study of five countries.
