Masters in Conservation Leadership

Plastic Free Africa
The African University of Cambridge Conservation Leadership Alumni Network (UCCLAN) brings your attention to our position statement on “The Influx of Plastic Waste by International Fossil Fuel and Chemicals Companies into Africa”.
African UCCLAN, a section of the global UCCLAN, comprises over 40 environmental leaders in 18 African nations. We represent a voice for change, provide input into African policy processes and advocate for lasting conservation impact for a better planet.
Based on our position statement, we are of the view that African countries need to be on guard and stand their ground on the refusal of imports of plastic waste into the continent.
Plastic debris is harming biodiversity on land and in our water bodies and microplastics pose a threat to human health and our food resources.
Please read the position statement and share widely.
