  • Activist and environmentalist groups have termed the Global Plastics Treaty negotiations that concluded in Ottawa, Canada as “disappointing”. 

  • Nearly 192 member countries deliberated for nearly a week to iron out a legally binding agreement to “end plastic pollution”.

  •  This was the fourth round of talks since countries resolved in 2022 to eliminate plastics and formed an Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee (INC), which consisted of government representatives tasked with drawing up a timeline for countries to not only eliminate plastic use but also halt production.

  • Because plastics do not easily degrade organically, they pollute marine and terrestrial ecosystems and have been long characterised as among the toughest environmental contaminants
