World Environment Day: A View from India

The theme for World Environment Day 2023 is focusing on solutions to the issue of plastic pollution under the campaign #BeatPlasticPollution.

World Environment Day 2023 is hosted by Côte d’Ivoire in partnership with the Netherlands on Monday 5th June:

Côte d’Ivoire is showing leadership in the campaign against plastic pollution. Since 2014, it has banned the use of plastic bags, supporting a shift to reusable packaging. The country’s largest city, Abidjan, has also become a hub for environmentally-minded start-ups.

“The scourge of plastic pollution is a visible threat that impacts every community,” says Jean-Luc Assi, Côte d’Ivoire’s Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development. “We are proud to champion diverse treatments for the plastic pandemic.”
