U.N. member states meeting in Nairobi, Kenya as part of the UNEA 5.2 agreed to the first global agreement to tackle plastic pollution. The historical treaty will be developed within two years. It will seek to prevent and reduce plastic pollution in the environment and address the full life cycle of plastics.
“This decision is historical in order to prevent plastic pollution in the long term. However, it should not be forgotten that this is only the beginning of eliminating the problem of plastic pollution. The process is just beginning! From now on, we have entered a period that is based on participation, and real solutions will be implemented under the leadership of science.” says Dr. Sedat Gundogdu, Chief Scientist of Microplastic Research Group
