Abstract

Our project provided information on the issue of ship-generated waste in the MARPOL-designated Wider Caribbean Region Special Area and made recommendations based on our findings. Using port-of-call and population statistics, we were able to estimate the amount of ship-generated and municipal waste produced by the region's vessel traffic and Small Island Developing States. We made recommendations on how to create a regional collection system to lessen the burden of ship-generated waste deposited on the islands.
