This report by the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) for RKC-MPD ERIA aims to provide an overview of the information related to the plastics value chain in the ASEAN region. It focuses on the availability of local and national data used for material flow analyses (MFAs) – instead of actual data content – as this information aims to be a stocktaking exercise towards building capacity in the area of data collection on the plastics value chain. Indeed, data on plastics are necessary to assess, plan, and implement solutions to mitigate marine plastics pollution. In this context, the following questions are examined in this report:

  1. What is the data collection capacity of ASEAN Member States (AMS)?
  2. What is the data availability on plastics in ASEAN across the plastics value chain?
  3. How can AMS improve data collection on plastics?
