INC session for an international legal framework to address plastic pollution

The Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee wrapped up its fourth session in Ottawa. The session was aimed at crafting an international legal framework to address plastic pollution, particularly in marine environments (INC-4). Participants achieved consensus on an advanced draft text of the instrument and outlined plans for intersessional activities leading up to the fifth session (INC-5) scheduled for November.

The INC’s responsibility is to formulate an international legally binding instrument on plastic pollution, encompassing marine environments. This instrument, referred to as “the instrument” henceforth, may incorporate both mandatory and voluntary measures. These measures will tackle the entire life cycle of plastic with a comprehensive approach.
