Money matters: Advancing Earth Day's goals with a global plastics treaty

World Bank Blog


This week, as the world marks Earth Day, the global community is highlighting the pressing issue of plastic pollution. The annual flow of plastic into the ocean is expected to nearly triple by 2040, posing a serious global development challenge. The international community is confronting the issue with a series of Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee (INC) sessions dedicated to negotiating an international legally binding instrument on plastic pollution, including in the marine environment. Known informally as a global plastic pollution treaty, the goal is to complete this work by the end of 2024.
