WRI Indonesia serves as a secretariat for the Indonesia National Plastic Action Partnership (NPAP), a multi-stakeholder platform that brings Indonesia’s leading policymakers, experts, businesses, entrepreneurs, and civil society organizations together in the effort to achieve 70 percent reduction in marine plastic debris by 2025. NPAP brings stakeholders together to achieve the target to reduce 70% of marine plastic debris by 2025 and to become plastic pollution-free by 2040.




The global ocean has been heavily polluted with plastics. The World Economic Forum predicts there will be more plastic than fish (by weight) in the ocean by 2050. With 265 million people and as ASEAN’s largest economy, Indonesia is a key player to reduce plastic waste, regionally and globally. The country’s growing economy and the archipelagic geography have led to high levels of plastics leakage into the sea, rivers and other ecosystems to the point where it affects public health and important economic sectors such as tourism and fisheries. To achieve the balance of economic growth and ocean’s health, the NPAP aims to accelerate the establishment of circular economy solutions to plastic waste.

The NPAP’s key pillars include:

  1. Policy
  2. Investments and sustainable finance
  3. Innovation (Research, technology/development, business models, markets)
  4. Public awareness and behavior change
  5. Metrics (Transparency and Accountability)


  1. Convene and tap into key partners from every sector that can help drive the plastic action agenda forward through concrete responsibilities and actions.
  2. Deliver a national plastic action roadmap that identifies priority action steps for Indonesia to implement in order to achieve its 70 percent reduction target.


Indonesia National Plastic Action Partnership (NPAP) is a collaboration between Global Plastic Action Partnership (GPAP) and the Government of Indonesia.
