  • Implement innovative methods that engage stakeholders to create solutions that dramatically reduce plastic use and/or input into watersheds
  • Focus on geographic gaps in knowledge (e.g., Africa) or on known hot spots that contribute most to the marine plastic pollution problem (e.g., coastal cities in China, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam; watersheds of the Yangtze, Indus, Yellow, Hai, Nile, Ganges, Pearl, Amur, Niger, and Mekong rivers)
