QUNO Statement at the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee on Plastic Pollution

On Wednesday, 30 November 2022, delegates met in plenary to discuss key topics relating to the creation of a new convention to reduce plastic pollution. This was the third day of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee – first session (INC-1) towards the creation of an international legally binding instrument (ILBI) on plastic pollution, including in the marine environment, taking place in Punta del Este, Uruguay.

Over lunch and into the evening, delegates convened an informal group to discuss options for INC-2 and stakeholder participation. QUNO, on behalf of the Friends World Committee for Consultation, delivered a statement (see below), which outlines various principles that are essential for any future multi-stakeholder engagement under a global instrument.
