It determined the stakeholders’ knowledge, attitude and practices related to plastic pollution problems including the impact, management and the communities’ reasons for using plastic products. It assessed the economic value of the river by identifying and analyzing economic benefits like employment, livelihood, plus goods and services derived from the river. Lastly, it determined the ability to pay and willingness to pay of the selected communities dependent on the river for people’s daily needs.
