In East Africa, several policy initiatives related to single-use plastic and extended producer responsibility have led to new opportunities, but also challenges, to the prospect of a circular plastic economy. This chapter examines the many threads held by researchers, entrepreneurs and industrialists, investors and policymakers, drawing from in-depth interviews and focus group discussions with key stakeholders. This chapter explicates the collaborative synergy of stakeholders across sectors that are playing a critical role in the transition to a circular plastic economy in East Africa. It also highlights the important contributions of digital innovations in lowering barriers and changing attitudes among consumers and producers alike.
