Tackling plastic pollution internationally
University of Portsmouth
The Global Plastics Policy Centre at the University of Portsmouth has been asked to work with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to support the development of a robust international agreement that will substantively confront global plastic pollution and its impacts. The University will provide independent, evidence-based analysis and guidance on plastics policy, including effectiveness of and gaps in existing policy; and recommended priority policy for tackling plastic pollution at national and global scales. National recommendations will need to be tailored to local conditions while remaining focused on global change. The process will be triggered at the UN Environment Assembly meeting from 28 February to 2 March 2022, after which the Global Plastics Policy Centre must be ready to participate fully in the treaty process. The need to ramp up team capacity is therefore urgent.
