GRID-Arendal, the Norwegian Academy of International Law and The Fridtjof Nansen Institute will host a live webinar during the first session of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee (INC-1) taking place in Punta del Este, Uruguay, 28 November to 2 December, 2022.

The event will raise some of the main issues of contention in the current negotiations towards an international legally binding instrument on plastic pollution, drawing on the recently published report Crafting an effective treaty on plastic pollution: Emerging fault lines in the intergovernmental negotiations. We will invite delegates and other actors to give real-time insights into the discussions taking place at INC-1 and share their views on the journey towards the new treaty.

Date: Wednesday 30 November 2022

Time: 08:30-09:30 a.m. UYT (breakfast from 08:00 am), 12:30 – 13:30 CET

Location: Parque Jean Clever Hotel (see map) and Zoom
