Rwanda and Norway to host a "Roadmap to end plastic pollution by 2024" event at WCEF2022

Rwanda and Norway through the Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA) are organising a "Road map to end plastic pollution by 2040" side event that will be convened on the sidelines of the World Circular Economy Forum (WCEF2022) that will be hosted in Kigali from 6 to 8 December 2022.

The event scheduled on 8th December 2022 will be a platform to share information about the High Ambition Coalition to End Plastic Pollution and its targets and objectives.

It will also be an opportunity to have a clear image on plastics and our needed collective effort to promote the circular economy by improving plastic recyclability. The event is perfect for high officials, government representatives and policymakers, business leaders, working-level practitioners and the interested public.

Plastics is often designed to become waste, and too much plastics have adverse effects on the environment and pose a risk to human health. The High Ambition Coalition to End Plastic Pollution is a group of like-minded countries committed to develop an international, legally binding instrument to end plastic pollution.

Negotiations to begin drafting a global treaty to end plastic pollution begun in Uruguay, Punta del Este from 28 November to 2 December 2022 with the first session of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee (INC1). The INC1 will develop an Internationally legally binding instrument to end plastic pollution.

This plastics treaty must ensure criteria and standards for design of plastics to ensure durability, recyclability and safety, enabling a circular economy for plastics that protects the environment and human health.
