TOMA-Now attended the inaugural African Marine Waste Conference with a special focus on reduction of plastic based marine pollutants. See the interview with our CEO Dr. Jaisheila Rajput on her expectations from the event.
The conference organizers used the platform to identify opportunities and solutions for Africa. The emphasis was on,
- Accumulating waste in Africa: Influence of land based activities on the amount of marine waste.
- Harnessing economic and other opportunities: What are the biggest opportunities and challenges?
- Finding solutions, taking opportunities and developing “Best Practice for Africa”.
