The seventeenth meeting of the UN Open-ended Informal Consultative Process on Oceans and the Law of the Sea will take place from 13-17 June 2016 at the UN Headquarters in New York. The meeting will convene under the theme “Marine debris, plastics and micro-plastics.”

Following a general exchange of views, the meeting will focus on two discussion panel segments. Segment one will consider the environmental, social and economic dimensions of marine debris, plastics and microplastics and progress made in preventing, reducing and controlling pollution from marine debris, plastics and microplastics. Segment two will discuss challenges, lessons learned, best practices and the way forward to prevent, reduce and control pollution from marine debris, plastics and microplastics.

Following the discussions, a Co-Chairs’ summary of issues and ideas raised and discussed will be produced as an outcome document, including issues that could benefit from attention in the future work of the General Assembly.
