The Global Declaration obliges signatories to commit to action in six areas: education, research, public policy, best practices, recycling/recovery, and product stewardship. As of the last progress report (2018), more than 355 marine litter projects have been planned, underway, or completed around the globe. Our projects range in size, focus, and scope and involve an ever growing number of partners. All are forging cooperation and furthering progress to prevent, reduce, and improve understanding of marine litter. At the present time this list does not reflect the entire universe of commitments.  We are currently working to get each project included here.  We will remove this notice when the entries are completed.
