Plastics Dialogue participants prepare ground for achieving outcomes at MC13

At the first meeting of the year of the Dialogue on Plastics Pollution and Environmentally Sustainable Plastics Trade on 16 February, co-sponsors discussed the latest developments in global efforts to reduce plastic pollution. The primary goal in 2023, as outlined by the co-coordinators, is to take steps towards turning a wealth of technical information into “concrete, pragmatic and effective” outcomes at the 13th Ministerial Conference (MC13), which is due to take place in Abu Dhabi in February 2024.
