SEA circular

Solving plastic pollution at source

Plastic waste is choking our seas and threatening ecosystems and livelihoods in South East Asia. Striving for cleaner seas, less plastic wasted and a more circular economy requires fundamental change throughout the plastic value chain.

SEA circular is an initiative of UN Environment Programme and the Coordinating Body on the Seas of East Asia (COBSEA) to inspire market-based solutions and encourage enabling policies to prevent marine plastic pollution.

about sea circular

SEA circular works with national and provincial governments, private sector corporations, civil society groups and NGOs, to promote circular economy principles and seek solutions to marine plastic pollution.  SEA circular works to support market-based solutions, enhance science, raise awareness and promote behaviour change, towards less plastic wasted in South-East Asia.


On World Ocean Day 2021, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and Coordinating Body on the Seas of East Asia (COBSEA) are partnering with the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) to launch an e-learning course on marine litter.

SEA of Solutions is an annually occurring partnership event towards solving plastic pollution at source, convened by the UNEP and the COBSEA, through the SEA circular project supported by the Government of Sweden.
