Ocean Plas­tic Pol­i­cy Hub

Uni­ver­si­ty of Portsmouth

The Uni­ver­si­ty of Portsmouth’s goal is to aug­ment and improve nation­al poli­cies to reduce ocean plas­tic pol­lu­tion, while build­ing pub­lic account­abil­i­ty on ocean plas­tic pol­lu­tion action. They will con­duct a major pol­i­cy analy­sis of approx­i­mate­ly 100 nation­al-lev­el, glob­al­ly-dis­trib­uted ocean plas­tics poli­cies, to scru­ti­nise and make trans­par­ent their effec­tive­ness at reduc­ing ocean plas­tic pollution.

At present, pol­i­cy­mak­ers seek­ing to tack­le ocean plas­tic pol­lu­tion are oper­at­ing in a pol­i­cy effec­tive­ness/in­de­pen­dent-evi­dence vac­u­um. Portsmouth University’s online ocean plas­tic pol­i­cy hub will pro­vide the nec­es­sary capac­i­ty to both assess cur­rent ocean plas­tic pol­i­cy effec­tive­ness and to inform future policy.
