Special ASEAN Ministerial Meeting on Marine Debris (SAMM)

Reducing marine debris is one of the most important issues under the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The increasing amount of global waste has caused serious damage to the ecosystem and the deterioration of coral reefs and seabed.

At the upcoming Special ASEAN Ministerial Meeting on Marine Debris, ASEAN will adopt a Framework of Action to tackle the marine debris issue in order to preserve our oceans.
