Ahead of UNEP INC4: Register to Join Informal Webinars with Observers

CYMG Plastic Action WG

A great opportunity for stakholders to share their perspectives on revised draft text

The fourth session of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee to develop an international legally binding instrument on plastic pollution, including in the marine environment (INC-4), will take place from 23 to 29 April 2024 at the Shaw Center in Ottawa, Canada. The session will be preceded by regional consultations on 21 April 2024.


Ahead of INC-4, observers are invited to participate in an online webinar. The Chair, along with the secretariat, has taken steps to ensure inclusivity by convening two sessions at different times to accommodate participants across various time zones. The webinar sessions are scheduled as follows:


  • 27th March: 20:00 – 22.00 East African Time (GMT+3)

Registration link for the first informal meeting


  • 28th March: 11:00 – 13:00 East African Time (GMT+3)

Registration link for the second informal meeting


The primary objective of these sessions is to create a platform for interested observers to share their reflections, insights, and ideas on the revised draft text of the ILBI on Plastic Pollution to be further negotiated at INC-4. Both sessions will be exclusively dedicated to interventions from observers. 


This initiative underscores the importance of engaging diverse stakeholders in the decision-making process concerning plastic pollution. By soliciting input from observers, including NGOs, academia, scientists, youth and others, the webinar aims to enrich the discourse surrounding plastic pollution and inform the negotiations on plastic pollution.
