Towards an International Agreement on Plastic Pollution: The Role of the G20
T20 Policy Brief
Kojima, Michikazu et al. 2021: Towards an International Agreement on Plastic Pollution: The Role of the G20. T20 Policy Brief. Task Force 3 Governing Climate Targets, Energy Transition, and Environmental Protection.
This policy brief investigates the gaps in the existing international treaties on marine plastic pollution and proposes components that need to be considered in a new treaty. These proposals will complement the G20 work on plastic pollution. Furthermore, since the G20 summit will be held in Indonesia in 2022, the focus of this policy brief will not only be relevant to G20 countries but also to Southeast Asia as the biggest contributor of marine plastics.
