The Plastic Island Crisis

The Caribbean coastal areas around the Guatemala–Honduras border, in particular Bahia de Omoa, are suffering from a dramatic crisis of pollution resulting from poor waste management.

Large scale 'floating islands' of plastic debris are in constant motion along these shores

Operating under the auspices of three Ministries of Foreign Affairs (Guatemala, Honduras and Israel), the Cartagena Convention, and within the "Regional Action Plan on Marine Litter Management (RAPMaLi) for the Wider Caribbean Region 2014",  the project will establish a zone of cooperation between Guatemala and Honduras in their common affected zone, and develop a joint holistic Strategic Action Plan to address the environmental crisis.
