June 25 – Uganda has today joined the Clean Seas Campaign, demonstrating the country’s commitment to curbing the flow of marine litter and plastic waste entering lakes, rivers, and the ocean.
The Clean Seas Campaign, launched by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) in 2017, has been a catalyst for change, transforming habits, practices, standards and policies around the globe.
With now 63 country partners, the Clean Seas Campaign is a global movement devoted to ending marine plastic pollution from

Individual pledges of action have reached more than one million. UNEP / Read more
