By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Belize is participating in the First Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee (INC) to develop a legally binding instrument on plastic pollution, including in the Marine Environment. 

Environmental officer, Aldo Cansino is representing Belize at the INC in Uruguay.

The event is being held from 28 November to 2 December 2022.

The INC-1 has been established to identify the form, elements, and objectives of a legally binding agreement to manage plastic pollution. 

Participants include delegates from different UN Member States and Organizations, NGOs, CBO, Private Sector, and Academia, among others who are actively engaged in the process which would culminate in 2025.

The Belize Department of the Environment (DOE) has enacted its Pollution from Plastics Regulations since 2020 and is actively carrying out its mandate.

“The DOE has vast experience in the thematic area and seeks to contribute significantly at this INC-1 as well as seek opportunities to strengthen our regulatory infrastructure and build partnership in addressing pollution from plastics,” the Department noted.
