This case study provides detailed insight into Bangkok's plastic waste value chain and the related actors.
The study analyzes the impact and links between the formal and informal actors in plastic waste management. Findings from the case study are used to highlight the main challenges and solutions around plastic waste, namely the lack of recognition of the informal sector, limited waste separation at source, the lack of technical capacity/financial incentives to recycle, and a lack of data.
