Summary

This report contains the results of a detailed source analysis of beach litter that had been collected on the Wadden island of Griend in September 2019. This analysis took place during a Litter-ID session, which is an interactive method developed by Wageningen University & Research where local stakeholders and experts are involved in mapping out the sources, origin, causes, interaction with the ecosystem and, where possible, the solutions in as much detail as possible. The results show that on the island of Griend, consumer and fishing waste are the main types of litter in terms of numbers and weight. In terms of origin, most litter is from the Netherlands, including the Wadden Sea region. Litter that has its origin outside of the Netherlands, mainly comes from France and Great Britain.
