Plastics

Plastic is a global health crisis hiding in plain sight. Despite being one of the most pervasive materials on the planet, plastic and its impact on human health is poorly understood. Yet exposure to plastic are expanding into new areas of the environment and food chain as existing plastic products fragment into smaller particles and concentrate toxic chemicals. As plastic production increases, this exposure will only grow. The WACA Plastics eBook developed under the West Africa Coastal Areas Management Program (WACA), with financial support from PROBLUE, the Quality Infrastructure Investment Partnership, and the Nordic Development Fund to focus on the plastic pollution aspect of WACA's work will soon be uploaded.
