The MARLISCO Guide for Reducing Marine Litter

ISOTECH Ltd developed “The MARLISCO Guide for Reducing Marine Litter: Get Inspired and Become Innovative Through Best Practices” within the framework of project MARLISCO, to provide an overview of the types of activities that different stakeholders could implement to reduce marine litter.

The Guide does not aim to reinvent the wheel! It is based on a collection of over 70 best practices for the reduction of marine litter, recorded from across Europe and the world within MARLISCO. An analysis of these practices showed that they can be clustered in 14 categories, each representing initiatives with specific, and often innovative, characteristics. Using these 14 best practice clusters the Guide presents the main actions that can be taken by key stakeholder groups to address the problem of marine litter. It provides an overview of the main types of practices, gives practical examples in the form of case studies and points the reader to further sources of information and details.
