This briefing on the third session of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee to develop an international legally binding instrument on plastic pollution, including in the marine environment (INC-3) to take place from 13 to 19 November 2023 2023 in Nairobi, Kenya, is held within the framework of the Geneva Beat Plastic Pollution Dialogues.
About this Event
The United Nations Environment Assembly made history in March 2022, by adopting a resolution setting up the path to a global treaty to end plastic pollution. The resolution requests the convening of an intergovernmental negotiating committee to develop an international legally binding instrument on plastic pollution, including in the marine environment, during the second half of 2022, with the ambition of completing its work by the end of 2024.
Rather than the end of the journey, this resolution represents a new turning point, from which much work still has to be done. Through the Geneva Beat Plastic Pollution Dialogues, the Geneva Environment Network and its partners support actors in the Geneva community and beyond, engaged in this process.
The third session of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee will take place from 13 to 19 November 2023, in Nairobi, Kenya.
This event held a few weeks ahead of the INC-3 session will provide updates on the preparations of this important event and stakeholders’ perspectives on the process. The briefing, organized within the framework of the Geneva Beat Plastic Pollution Dialogues, will take stock of the zero draft, recently released by the INC Chair and will set the tone for what negotiations in Nairobi will address.
By order of intervention. Additional speakers to be confirmed.
Executive Secretary, INC Plastic Pollution Secretariat
