Given the urgency of addressing data gaps on marine plastic litter, timely data, effective stakeholder engagement, cross- sector collaboration, and citizen engagement are critical to advancing this feasibility study. The innovative and integrated approach outlined in this report can also support the fulfillment of SDG 14.1.1b (measurement of plastic debris density) as well as informing policy formulation and action plans. The ability to harness the aforementioned innovative data sources, involve members of the public and communities in the process, and communicate findings in accessible formats, empowers people and communities, policymakers, and various stakeholders with the insights necessary for guiding sustainable practices.
