Technologies for Observing and Monitoring Plastics in the Oceans

26/11/2018 - 27/11/2018

This workshop will bring together stakeholders engaged in assessing and reducing the impacts of plastics in the ocean, experts assessing the sources of plastics in the ocean, and scientists and developers focusing on existing and new observation technologies to detect and quantify plastics in the ocean. The meeting will aim for a joint understanding of the challenge, including the impacts of plastics on life in the ocean and on land. The plastics life-cycle when in the ocean will be at the center of the challenge for developing a conceptual model which will then be used to look at different socio-economic and environmental scenarios.

The workshop will deliver a road map with recommendations on detection and quantitative mapping of amount and impacts of plastics in the oceans. This road map will cover the next five years (2019-2023) and will come with a report summarizing the workshop deliberations.
