Target 7 of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework, adopted at the COP 15 of the Convention on Biological Diversity, calls for reduction of pollution from all sources (e.g. nutrients, chemicals, pesticides), and preventing, reducing, and working towards eliminating plastic pollution. Interlinked with this, Target 16 speaks to the reduction of the global consumption footprint and overconsumption, and reducing waste generation (e.g. food waste).

This webinar will identify and discuss some key trade-related policies and measures that can contribute to pollution and waste reduction, and facilitate the uptake of circular practices, supporting the delivery of Target 7 and Target 16 objectives for both biodiversity and people.
