The Campaign will focus on promoting activities in waste management and pollution control in Pacific islands. According to David Sheppard, Director of SPREP, the Campaign will raise awareness and build capacity in the management and disposal of solid waste.

Due to the remote locations of some Pacific islands, SPREP will focus on sustainable local solutions. [SPREP Press Release]
