Plastics hotspot assessment at sectoral level in Cyprus

  • Published on November 30, 2022

The choice of Cyprus is deliberate because, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was the most popular island destination in Europe after the islands of Spain i.e., Canaries and Baleares [4]. Although the key points of this report are primarily valid for the tourism sector of Cyprus, with appropriate adjustments accounting for the local context, the findings can also be used to understand the challenge of plastic waste generation and management in other island destinations in Europe and beyond

This report, commissioned by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), undertakes a plastics hotspot assessment in the tourism sector of an island destination, using the Republic of Cyprus as a case study.
