International Treaty on Plastic Pollution
From November 28 to December 2, the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee of the International Treaty on Plastic Pollution will meet in Punta del Este, Uruguay. In order to prepare
this first round of discussions, the Secretariat of the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) has produced a summary document on the state of knowledge on this subject and has outlined a few strategy options. As a Special Observer to the UN, the Tara Ocean Foundation takes stock of the situation:what can
we learn from it ? What expectations can legitimately be stated regarding the objectives of the future Treaty?
