OCEANLIT’s overall objective is “to reduce marine debris, help conserve and restore coastal and marine protected natural spaces in oceanic archipelagos“. The project will have an applied approach to reduce this waste based on three specific objectives:

  1. Generate knowledge, solutions and tools for the characterization and monitoring of waste that help in making decisions about reducing waste and minimizing environmental impact.
  2. Promote the improvement of waste management facilities and the involvement of professionals, users, port managers and administrations in the integration of marine waste in waste management systems.
  3. Raise awareness and sensitize professionals, users and the general public through communication actions, campaigns, dissemination of good practices and success stories.
