This study identifies the specific plastic waste management situation in Viet Nam and drafts tailored EPR scheme recommendations. The extended producer responsibility (EPR) schemes have proven to be an effective measure on this pathway. Originating in more industrialised countries, these concepts are increasingly implemented in emerging markets, responding to multiple challenges due to growing (plastic) waste generation. This study presents an in-depth analysis and recommendations are elaborated in this study on EPR scheme assessment for Plastic Packaging Waste in Viet Nam.
