Lebanon has experienced warfare, economic hardship, and terrorism throughout its recent history. From the war that raged in the country from 1975 to 1990, when an estimated 120,000 people were killed, to foreign occupation, to instability, Lebanon has had a difficult history. Last week, on August 4th, an explosion devastated Beirut killing over one hundred people and injuring thousands. This incident shocked the nation amidst a horrible economic crisis and a tremendous lack of faith in the competence of the government. Doug Becker speaks with Bassel F. Salloukh and Hannes Baumann about the ongoing political and economic crisis in Lebanon.

Last week the government announced that a series of products are to be placed on a priority list as part of the waste minimization act, which includes e-waste, which Hannah covered yesterday, as well as a range of plastics. By doing so, levvys will be put in place and requirements to create more integration into the circular economy. The circular economy is an idea which revolves around the fact that many of the products do not go in a full circular fashion as materials do in nature, instead ending up in places such as landfills. While the intention is positive, there is potential for unintended consequences as voiced by the plastic industry. To understand more of their concerns, James talks to Rachel Barker, the CEO of Plastics NZ, about what this will mean for the future.
