SCS:LEARN - Stories from the South China Sea: Land-Based Pollution

This is the 3rd in a series of short films presenting the issue of land-based pollution in the South China Sea. Actions of governments, coastal communities and civil society organisations to help plan infrastructure investments using scientific tools developed through the UNEP/GEF South China Sea project are highlighted. This is the unique aspect of this initiative, in that it aims to provide tools for better management of land-based pollution in order to bring about transformational change in how counrties manage wastes associated their burgeoning economies. The environmental costs of meeting global demand for seafood, high-end electronics, and ideallic holiday getaway destinations from the global community are presented and discussed briefly in the context of the need to think globally, and act locally.
