Countries are to meet in Kenya from 13-17 November to thrash out a global plastic pollution treaty to be in place by the end of 2024. These talks are the
third round and will mark the
halfway point to a Plastics Treaty.
From the international negotiating committee (INC) a “zero draft” version of previous discussions outlines 3 options relating to virgin plastic production and a reduction of primary
plastic: 1. Agreed Global reduction targets 2. Agreed production targets and and 3. individual National reduction targets.
All eyes are on the US to soften their objections to these developments.
