We are a collaborative forum of researchers, educators, scientists, industry and conservationists working to mitigate and prevent plastic-related pollution in Aotearoa and Oceania.
Scope of work
Our aim is to engage with policymakers, industry and the public, including Pasifika leaders, to advocate for, and develop solutions to prevent plastic pollution while best-managing what’s already in the environment.
The APPA will organise or participate in research, advocacy, citizenship, events and publications addressing topics to prevent, mitigate and restore the impacts of existing and future adverse impacts from production, disposal and pollution impacts on Papatuanuku (land), Ranginui (air), wai (freshwater),Tangaroa (oceans) and all living beings in Aotearoa and Oceania.
Our strategy integrates the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, mātauranga Māori and Pasifika science to promote the latest research, information about the impacts of plastic pollution, and solutions for mitigating plastic pollution at local, national and international scales.
