Deputy Secretary-General's remarks at United Nations Environment Assembly Flagship Side Event on Marine Litter [as delivered]

Excellencies, Distinguished delegates,
I’m delighted to be here with you today to speak about this ubiquitous global challenge.
The challenge of plastic pollution affects us all. From the bottom of the seabed to the highest mountains, our world is swamped by harmful plastic.
We all have a role to play in the solution.
Leadership at the global level has the potential to truly accelerate action to tackle this global scourge.
Here, at UNEA, Member States were given a profound opportunity.
