Vietnam is estimated to account for 6 percent of the ocean plastics and is ranked 4th in terms of plastic marine debris globally. Vietnam generated over 2 million tonnes of plastic waste in 2017. Based on current trajectories, the total volume of municipal solid waste could increase by more than 40 percent by 2030.
It is time to take actions to meet UN’s agenda and the call from Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc on reducing plastic waste on August 7, 2019.
