The study investigates the socioeconomic implications of plastic waste pollution mitigation initiatives along the Imus River, which traverses the Philippine province of Cavite. It explores initiatives identified by local communities on plastic waste management and examines how these initiatives are managed and implemented. It also describes the various communities’ culturally nuanced understanding of plastic waste management as well and its implications to them as Cavite residents. It is based on reports commissioned by the ASEANO project to help Local Government Units (LGUs) better understand the plastics pollution problem and develop practical and enforceable solutions.
