Navigating Successful Policy Reform Series: Reducing Plastic Pollution in Kenya
This paper is part of the Navigating Successful Policy Reform series undertaken by Coalitions for Change and the Institute for Human Security and Social Change at La Trobe University. The paper explores how a ban on thin plastic bags in Kenya was introduced to address a visible environmental and reputational challenge. It is the first of three case studies exploring developmental policy reforms, demonstrating politically smart and learning-oriented ways of working within challenging political contexts. The cases investigate whether reform stories bear similarities to the development entrepreneurship approach, which has been successful in the Philippines.
