CIEL’s Annotated Zero Draft of the Plastics Treaty

Back to Resource Library

This analysis is meant to inform the reading of and discussion on the Zero Draft during the third session of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee (INC-3). It takes the form of an annotated copy of the Zero Draft text in order to facilitate understanding the implications and considerations of the different options while reading the document.

The Center for International Environmental Law (CIEL) considers the Zero Draft of the plastics treaty
(UNEP/PP/INC.3/4), prepared by the Chair of the INC in consultation with the Secretariat, a good
reflection of all the positions expressed during previous INCs and throughout intersessional
submissions. As such it constitutes a very solid starting point for moving the negotiations forward.
