1. National hotspots analysis to support sustainable consumption and production programmes
The National Hotspot Analysis project aims to support science-based national policy frameworks for sustainable consumption and production. The desired final outcome is the delivery of a project that successfully develops a harmonized methodology for hotspots analysis of national economies and value chains. Moreover, guidelines and tools will be developed to enable governments to prioritise actions for sustainable consumption and production, after testing in 3 pilot countries.

2. Mapping the plastics value chain and identifying priority actions at national level, with a focus on marine plastics
This project is expected to map the plastics value chain for identification of hotspots related to the issue of marine plastics based on a common methodology in a case study country. This will provide both a methodological guidance on how to map the plastics value chain related to marine plastics and it will also create new knowledge on the transport and distribution pathways as well as on the hotspots of marine litter in the context of a specific case study country. The project will also facilitate the identification of knowledge gaps and potential instruments related to preventing and minimizing marine pollution resulting from waste. By applying the hotspots analysis under the life cycle thinking, targeted solutions can address the systematic problem related to marine plastics, while avoiding potential trade-offs when adopting solutions only solving part of the problems.
