As part of their efforts to support the global policy discussions on a new global agreement to combat plastic pollution, the Nordic Council of Environment and Climate Ministers commissioned a report, to explore how to strengthen the science and knowledge base and to ensure evidence based policy-making.
In response to this, adelphi has prepared the report “Strengthening the Global Science and Knowledge Base to Reduce (Marine) Plastic Pollution”.
Many have voiced their request for a stronger global science and knowledge base as a central feature in a new global governance architecture, while also emphasizing the need for a life-cycle approach to prevent and reduce plastic pollution in the environment.
The report is meant as a contribution to the global policy discussion and aims to inform policy-makers and others, on the need for a new scientific mechanism and by providing insights on design and institutional options to ensure effective science-policy.
