OSPAR ICG Marine Litter meeting

In Edinburgh on 12th, 13th and 14th November

Cedre attended the meeting of the OSPAR Intersessional Correspondence Group on Marine Litter (ICG/ML) held in Edinburgh on 12th, 13th and 14th November.

This meeting addressed the monitoring programmes and assessments for the different common or candidate marine litter indicators (on beaches, on the seabed, ingested by fulmars and turtles and microplastics in sediment), in part with a view to preparing the 2023 Quality Status Report (QSR).

One day was devoted to the OSPAR Regional Action Plan (RAP) for Marine Litter, with a review of the actions carried out by the different Member States.

Cedre presented the national microplastics monitoring protocol set to be applied from 2019/2020 on beaches along the French coastline, as well as the European projects CleanAtlantic and OceanWise, as a partner in these projects and on behalf of the two consortia.
