Governing Plastics Network

The Governing Plastics Network was jointly created by the University of Nairobi in Kenya and the University of Surrey in the UK, and is funded by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) through the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF).

Since the Network was established, we have broadened our reach, creating new projects with partners across Europe, East Africa, the Caribbean, Brazil and Australia. Research across our projects is funded by the UKRI/GCRF, AHRC, EPSRC and UGPN.
