Draft Policy Recommendation: Single Use Plastic Restriction on Food and Beverage Delivery Service in DKI Jakarta Provincial Government
The use of plastic food and beverage containers, especially in DKI Jakarta Province, has experienced a significant increase in consumption level in line with the increase in the level of food and beverage shopping transactions through online applications. As a result, it has contributed to an increase in the single-use plastic waste generation. Additionally, the lack of access to alternative reuse system is one of the biggest obstacles to adopting this system. Against these conditions, GIDKP together with Zero Waste Living Lab by Enviu initiated the Jakarta Reuse Movement by carrying out several interventions to create a reuse ecosystem and promote alternative lifestyles for reuse through advocacy and education. One of the advocacy activities in this movement is the submission of a draft policy recommendations to the DKI Jakarta Provincial Government.
This movement is also supported by the Collaborative Actions for Single-Use Plastic Prevention in Southeast Asia (CAP SEA) Program implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH. The CAP SEA program is part of GIZ's global project module, The Export Initiative Environmental Protection, funded by the German Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV).
