The 5th edition of the Report on Actions Against Marine Plastic Litter is based on the “G20 Implementation Framework for Actions on Marine Plastic Litter” established at the G20 Ministerial Meeting in June 2019 in Karuizawa, Japan. This report is a compilation of information, voluntarily shared by the G20 members, invited/other countries and international organisations on policies and measures undertaken to address the global issue of marine litter. 

A comprehensive assessment of practices adopted by countries and entities is presented in chapters 2 to 5 of this report. Information on the legal and policy framework (chapter 2), measures and achievements (chapter 3), challenges (chapter 4), and best practices (chapter 5) are collated, based on the inputs received. Detailed submissions of the contributing member/ country, and international organisations are presented in chapter 6 as further information, along with the data collection questionnaire, which was updated in 2023 to capture recent mechanisms and instruments for encouraging community participation.
