From late May to June 2, 2023, a delegation from the China Biodiversity Conservation and Green Development Foundation (CBCGDF) participated in the second session of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee to develop an international legally binding instrument on plastic pollution, including in the marine environment, known as INC-2, held in the UNESCO Headquarter at Paris.

During the event, CBCGDF was featured in a report by Caixin, a Chinese media outlet. The report titled "Further Progress in International Negotiations on Plastic Pollution Governance: Drafting the 'Zero Draft'" can be found at the following link:

The participation of CBCGDF in INC-2 has garnered some media attention, highlighting the organization's commitment to addressing the pressing issue of plastic pollution. The INC-2 meeting aimed to draft a legally binding international document that addresses plastic pollution, with a particular focus on the marine environment. As a leading voice in biodiversity conservation and green development, CBCGDF's presence at the conference demonstrated its dedication and support to finding effective solutions to the global plastic pollution crisis.

The Caixin report sheds light on the achievements of INC-2 and provides insights into the future direction of the negotiation process. The article discusses the progress made in drafting the "Zero Draft," which represents an initial framework for the international instrument on plastic pollution governance. It outlines the key issues addressed during the negotiations, including the reduction of single-use plastics, the promotion of recycling and waste management systems, and the strengthening of international cooperation to combat plastic pollution.

As the negotiations progress and the "Zero Draft" takes shape, CBCGDF remains committed to actively engaging in the process, collaborating with stakeholders, and promoting dialogue on plastic pollution governance. And the Beijing-based group will participate the upcoming INC-3 in Nairobi. By working together with governments, civil society organizations, and the private sector, CBCGDF strives to support the joint efforts for a future where plastic pollution is effectively managed, biodiversity is conserved, and sustainable development is achieved.
