1. Background

Plastic pollution is an urgent problem with major, adverse impacts on the health of ocean ecosystems, the integrity of food supplies, and on livelihoods. It is estimated that between 4.8–12.7 Mt of plastics accumulate in oceans every year (Jambeck et al., 2015), 80% of which is believed to originate from land-based sources whereas the remaining 20% from ocean-based sources, such as fisheries and the shipping industry (Ocean Conservancy, 2017). Roughly 75% of the leakage from land-based sources is thought to stem from uncollected waste (Ocean Conservancy, 2017). 


WWF has a vision of an economy and a society that has zero tolerance for plastic pollution and all harm caused to the environment from such pollution. As part of this vision, WWF has launched the global initiative “No Plastic in Nature”, under the project ‘Marine Litter Prevention Through Reduction, Sustainable Design and Recycling of Plastic Packaging (MA-RE-DESIGN) or New Approached to Tackling the Plastic Waste Challenges in Thai Tourism and Local Municipalities (NAPTAM)’, aiming at reducing plastic waste leakage into the sea in Thailand and to address the plastic problem using a holistic approach. One key guiding document within this initiative is the Plastic Smart Cities (PSC) Strategic Framework, which is compiled in the PSC Playbook. This document represents a step-by-step approach on how to activate city stakeholders on tackling their specific plastic problem.


In order to stop plastic pollution, action plans based on reliable local data, identified through the baseline studies, are required. Under the Plastic Smart Cities framework, the Scoping and Action Planning approach includes a comprehensive baseline assessment and stakeholder mapping before defining reduction targets and actions. The beneficial impact of projects needs to be measured by formulating key performance indicators (KPIs) and measuring them before and after the intervention.
