The Joint Pilot Activities
Introduction of Waste Bring back System in the Anzali Wetland
- Purpose: To raise awareness of tourists and fishermen in order to reduce the waste littering to the Anzali Wetland.
- Outcome: The waste bring back campaigns were held for tourists for 10 days in the Nowruz holidays 2017 and held for fisherman on 9 days in November 2017. In addition, totally 33 signboards were installed in Dahanesar Sheijan, Jirsar Bagher Khaleh and Hendeh Khaleh village for the public awareness.
- Future Plan: Further public awareness campaign for fishing persons will be held. Further installation of signboard and waste bins in and around the wetland.
- Topic: During the campaign for fisherman, 337 waste bags were provided and more than 70% of them cooperated to bring-bask their waste. There were some fishermen who bring-back not only their own waste but also the waste scattered around their fishing points. As result, about 180 L/day of waste in average could be collected.
