Launch forthcoming in 2021
In January 2021, the Government of Nigeria announced that it will join the World Economic Forum’s Global Plastic Action Partnership alongside Indonesia, Ghana and Viet Nam to advance national efforts to fight plastic pollution.
In joining GPAP, Nigeria will work with the World Economic Forum to launch a National Plastic Action Partnership, based on a promising model that has been piloted in Indonesia, Ghana and Viet Nam. Its principal mandates will include creating and working with locally led, locally driven platforms, such as the Federal Ministry of Environment and the African Development Bank-coordinated Nigeria Circular Economy Working Group (NCEWG), to bring together the country’s most influential policy-makers, business leaders and civil society advocates. The goal is to deliver a national action plan for radically reducing plastic pollution, connecting high-potential solutions with strategic financing opportunities.
We warmly welcome opportunities to work together to build the Nigeria National Plastic Action Partnership. Please complete the survey below to provide information about your expertise and initiatives.
