Science-Policy Interface for Plastic Pollution

08 Nov 2023

The international legally binding instrument on plastic pollution serves as a crucial mechanism for navigating the intricacies of the global plastic pollution crisis and fostering the development of evidence-based policies to end plastic pollution. With the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee mandated to develop the plastics instrument by the end of 2024, a unique opportunity arises to establish a strong science-policy interface for plastic pollution.

By outlining potential functions of the science-policy interface for plastic pollution and providing recommendations, the report will support the establishment of effective arrangements for the science-policy interface within the global plastics instruments. Furthermore, it emphasizes the need to enhance collaboration with the Science-Policy Panel, multilateral environmental agreements, and other relevant bodies, paving the way for a coherent and concerted effort needed to end plastic pollution.
