Assessing the effectiveness of waste management in reducing the levels of plastics entering Australia's marine environment

This preliminary report and plain English summary for this emerging priorities project is intended to be a high-level document that synthesises existing knowledge on the relationship between debris in the marine environment and litter data from nearby sites, and the pathways through which litter moves into the marine environment.

Maps showing leakage points and litter or debris concentrations (e.g. hotspots) are also provided.
