A group of like-minded countries has taken the initiative to form a coalition of ambitious countries following the adoption of resolution 5/14, “End Plastic Pollution: Towards an International Legally Binding Instrument”, by the UN Environment Assembly in March 2022. The High Ambition Coalition is Co-Chaired by Norway and Rwanda, as announced during UNEA5.2. The High Ambition Coalition to End Plastic Pollution is committed to developing an ambitious international legally binding instrument based on a comprehensive and circular approach that ensures urgent action and effective interventions along the entire lifecycle of plastics. GRID-Arendal supports the coalition by providing communication services and organising events to raise awareness of its strategic goals and promote stakeholder collaboration and engagement.
