Small Island Developing States & Plastic Pollution: Elements of a Global Plastics Agreement
In late 2022, the international community convened in Punta del Este, Uruguay for the first meeting of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee (INC) to begin developing a new global agreement to end plastic pollution. This process has been largely guided by UNEA Resolution 5/14, which, among other things, broadly identifies provisions that must—at a minimum—be included in the final agreement or otherwise considered by the INC. But while there have been growing discussions around a number of common elements, the INC has yet to decide on the specific contents or structure of the new agreement.

Join us for the second installment of our SIDS & Global Plastics Series to hear from a panel of policy and legal experts who will share their insights on the outcomes of INC-1 and explore key issues surrounding the structure and elements of a new global plastics agreement, including potential implications for Small Island Developing States.
