Local authorities support the "Plastic free Rivers" campaign
It is very important to raise public awareness, especially promoting plastic waste importance to decision makers is essential. Consequently, the organizers started plastic use research starting from January 2019 in Khentii and Dornod province Governor's Office. The local government is supportive of the research as well. They are able to sort out what kind of waste they are producing mostly, and measure ways to reduce plastic. The research will continue for 3 months. The Kherlen River Basin Administration and the Province Environmental Department will monitor and advice if necessary. Then the results are presented to the public and will urge other organizations to reduce plastic use.
In addition, the "Care for Water" competition was held on March 23- World Water Day, under the "Plastic free Rivers" campaign. Also, within this framework, WWF-Mongolia initiated the "Dornod is with reusable cotton bag" campaign with government and private organizations of Dornod province.
