O5 November 2023



Minister Barbara Creecy, will host a consultative stakeholder engagement meeting on South Africa’s negotiating position ahead of the third Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee (INC3), on Tuesday, 07 November 2023.


The third Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee (INC3) on Plastic Pollution is scheduled to take place in Nairobi, Kenya from 13 – 19 November 2023.


United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA) resolution 5/14 requested the Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to convene an intergovernmental negotiating committee, to begin its work during the second half of 2022, with the ambition of completing its work by the end of 2024.


The Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee is mandated to develop an international legally binding instrument to end plastic pollution and marine litter.  The mandate to the 3rd session of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee (INC 3) calls for addressing the full plastic lifecycle and set out a series of provisions to be developed.


Minister Creecy will engage with the stakeholders in a virtual consultation with the aim to consolidate South Africa’s negotiating position at INC3 in Nairobi.
