Southeast Asia in Transition: Plastic Runs Through It

In recent decades, people living in the Southeast Asia have witnessed major transformations in their lives and livelihoods. This series of seminars will focus on a variety of issues—all of which have a plastic connection. The first webinar introduces the expanding problem of plastic waste in the region and community and government action to reign it in. The following webinars talk about the growth of fisheries and aquaculture, the expansion of oil palm and rubber plantations, and the politics of conservation and heritage areas. This series of four webinars will explore how communities in the region are experiencing the economic, social, and cultural dislocations of these transformations.
