"Modelling plastic pollution in Southeast Asia"
by Bibas, Ruben, Sarbjit Gill, Daniel Ostale Valriberas and Elisa Lanzi

Plastic pollution is creating global environmental risks on ecosystems and human health, while plastics are an integral part of the global economy being used in almost all economic sectors. Governments are thus scaling up their policy efforts to limit plastic leakage to the environment. The ASEAN countries and other Asian economies are regions of particular interest since they are projected to have high economic growth but that still have limited waste management systems, therefore leading to high levels of plastic leakage. This paper aims at understanding the need for policy action and the scale of the challenge that the ASEAN regions is facing about plastics. Further than the understanding of the complex interlinked issues of plastic pollution and economic development, this paper examines the challenge in confronting (sparse) physical data for plastic production, waste and recycling and economic data (primarily GTAP data on the plastic and recycling sectors).
