International Praise For Qatar's Efforts To Reduce Plastic Pollution


(MENAFN- The Peninsula) QNA

Doha: The Asia Pacific Region Group of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee (INC) praised the efforts of the State of Qatar to reduce plastic pollution and the organization of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 as the first carbon-neutral and environmentally friendly World Cup tournament.

The group noted the waste and trash sorting mechanism, and the measures adopted by the State of Qatar to reduce the use of plastic in sporting events by reducing its consumption, and recycling it in an environmentally sound manner, as well as in line with the principles of the circular economy, and with the global trends of the Plastics Treaty.

This came after the participation of the State of Qatar, represented by the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change, in the meeting of the Asia Pacific Region Group of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee (INC) to develop a binding international law on plastic pollution, which was held in the Republic of Uruguay from Nov 28 to Dec 2.

The Ministry of Environment and Climate Change participated in the meeting, represented by the Department of Radiation and Chemicals Protection.

The draft of an international law on plastic pollution is one of the solutions aimed at mitigating the potential damage resulting from the mismanagement of plastic waste, as it is a global transnational challenge that requires concerted efforts and joint action to protect the environment.
