This presentation will look at some of the science underpinning multilateral environmental agreements – on climate change, ozone, biodiversity, and hazardous substances – and assess the impacts of these agreements to date and their potential for the future. Two agreements that the United Nations has recently agreed to develop, on plastic and ocean protection, will also be discussed, with an eye to learning from the past.
