The Collaborative Actions for Single-Use Plastic Prevention in South-East Asia (CAP SEA) is a project funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV) and implemented by GIZ. CAP SEA key objective is to reduce single use plastic (SUP) by introducing innovative business models and by developing stakeholders’ capacities, explicitly on upstream measures, not downstream waste management.

CAP SEA supports local governments and corporates to achieve these objectives. It supports small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and start-ups/corporates to provide alternative and environmentally friendlier solutions, and business models that encourage plastic recycling or reuse. Also, the project supports public private partnership development to jointly develop solutions.

In Indonesia, CAP SEA aims to contribute to the achievement of targets stated in The National Action Plan on Marine Plastic Debris (2017-2025) – reduction of plastic waste by 70% by 2025 compared to 2017; and The Roadmap to Waste Reduction by Producers (through the Ministry of Environment and Forestry or MoEF Regulation P.75/2019) – reduction of packaging waste from producers by 30% by 2029. In addition to that, CAP SEA actively participates in The Indonesian National Plastic Action Partnership (NPAP), a platform for public-private collaboration intends to: (1) Reduce avoidable plastic use and avoid the consumption of 540,000 tones/year of plastics in 2025 (6% of projected plastic waste generation in 2025), through policy and behavior change and new business models; (2) Substitute 740,000 tones/year of plastics with alternative materials (8% of projected plastic waste generation in 2025) and (3) Collect, safely dispose and recycle unavoidable plastics with the goal of making all plastic waste a valuable commodity. 

CAP SEA in collaboration with The Coordinating Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Investment (CMMAI) are organizing a Project Closing Event on 16 – 17 March 2023 in Yogyakarta City, Indonesia. This event welcomes project partners and relevant stakeholders for a one-day offline event and a site visit to SUP prevention initiative in Yogyakarta. The overarching theme of the event is Collaborative Actions to Beat Plastic Pollution.



The event has the following aims:

  • To share lesson learnt of single use prevention and packaging waste reduction effort in relation to The National Action Plan on Marine Plastic Debris as well as circular economy and SDG 12.
  • To disseminate relevant policy recommendations for upstream measures.
  • To facilitate strategic and interactive discussion on SUP reduction and preparation for reuse.
  • To showcase initiatives to beat plastic pollution.
