APEC Webinar Series on Promoting Investment to Combat Marine Litter and Build a Circular Economy in APEC — Innovative Technologies and Opportunities for Land Based Waste Management


In support of the 2020 APEC priority “Driving Innovative Sustainability”, Malaysia, in collaboration with the Malaysian Green Technology & Climate Change Centre (MGTC) and Ocean Conservancy, will co-host a marine debris webinar series. The main objective of the webinar series is to explore options to build a new, innovative economy around waste and recycling in APEC economies in order to reduce marine litter, spur economic development, and support the growth of small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in the region. The series will identify funding opportunities for innovative policies and technologies geared towards the circular economy; pathways to integrate APEC economy companies, including SMEs, into existing support networks and technology incubators; and methods to enable those companies to deploy their innovations in the markets where they are needed most.
