Is a Ban the Best Way to Reduce Plastic Bag Use? A Case Study from Delhi
AbstractIn many developing countries plastic bags are a significant environmental problem. This is particularly true in the city of Delhi, which faces rapid development with un-matched and inadequate waste management systems. To address this problem, the government of Delhi passed a blanket ban on the use of plastic bags in 2009. However, the ban has been largely ineffective. This Brief discusses how the problem of plastic bag use might be more effectively tackled. [SANDEE Policy Brief Number 60-11].
