AHOEEG on Marine Litter and Micro-plastics 2018: Tim Gabriel's intervention at Item 7 Feasibility and effectiveness of different response options.

“Recognizing that the timeline of these initiatives would not be consistent with the sense of urgency on marine litter and, more specifically, marine plastic pollution, we should also invite UNEP to approach the various secretariats less formally to start collecting all relevant information without formal decisions by their governing bodies”.

Tim Gabriel (IEA, USA) presented his combined statement on behalf of several Major Groups: Women, NGO, Children & Youth, Farmers, Trade Union & Workers, Indigenous Peoples, and Science & Technology major groups, during Item 7 – Feasibility and effectiveness of different response options, at the Ad Hoc Open-Ended Expert Group on Marine Litter and Micro-plastics, held in Nairobi, at the UN Office, on 31st May 2018.
