President Ruto launches plastic pollution summit

In his opening remarks, Kenyan President William Ruto said that plastic pollution remains an existential threat to a just transition as well as human and planetary health, noting that a legally binding treaty could offer some relief. Ruto said ending plastic pollution from the source to the end users will ensure a just and green transition for humanity, promote ecological health and revitalize the growth of the circular economy. The Kenya meeting follows previous sessions held in Uruguay in 2022, and Paris earlier this year. The negotiations for a global plastic treaty stem from the adoption of a landmark resolution at the fifth session of the United Nations Environment Assembly held in Nairobi in February 2022. Discussions on the contents of the Zero draft, which was agreed upon at INC-2, will dominate this week’s meeting, aiming to expedite the process of establishing a legally binding global treaty to combat plastic pollution by 2024. https://www.capitalfm.co.ke/business/2023/11/global-negotiations-for-plastic-treaty-commences-in-kenya/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=global-negotiations-for-plastic-treaty-commences-in-kenya
