UNEP official: marine plastic pollution is becoming more and more serious, and all countries must act together

Eric, executive director of the United Nations Environment Programme? Solheim spoke at the forum

from December 9 to 11, the 2017 annual meeting of the China Council for international cooperation in environment and development (hereinafter referred to as the "CSCE") was held in Beijing. The GCC is a non-profit, international high-level policy advisory body approved by the Chinese government. This annual meeting will adopt the Charter of the sixth session of the GCC, listen to the relevant policy research report on China's green transformation outlook, and discuss and form the policy recommendations of the GCC to the Chinese government

on December 9, Svensson, director of ocean affairs of the United Nations Environment Programme, said at the sub forum of "global ocean governance and ecological civilization" that China is not only a large marine country, but also a large marine fishery breeding country, and fishery breeding is oriented to the sea. China needs to find a more sustainable fishery breeding model to solve the pollution of plastic waste, sewage and antibiotics on the offshore


"marine pollution is global," Svensson said. In the past few days, she went to Kenya and saw a lot of plastic on the beach. Some turtles were trapped by plastic. Doctors need to consider how to remove these plastic from the turtle's body, and governments need to consider how to jointly deal with marine pollution

"in African waters, most of the plastic does not come from Africa, but drifts to Africa from Japan or other parts of the world, but plastic pollution has affected Africa's marine ecosystem." Svensson said

Eric, executive director of the United Nations Environment Programme? Solheim said that in the past few years, global plastic pollution has become increasingly serious, and all countries must take joint actions to deal with it. Solving marine environmental problems requires not only the will and support of the government, but also citizens' actions

"in Mumbai, I saw the largest scale of cleaning up in human history, and in Indonesia, I also saw thousands of people go to the seaside to clean up garbage and so on." He said

"Americans use an average of 600 straws every year. Why don't we use glass or other materials to replace plastic to produce straws? Many of us have plastic shells. Why don't we take away this plastic shell? So first of all, we should avoid using plastic when we don't need plastic. This is very important. Second, we should find alternative materials to make the plastic industry 'green'." Solheim suggested that enterprises should use more recyclable materials to replace plastic, and citizens should try to reduce the use of plastic products in their daily life

it was learned from the forum that since last year, SOA has focused on marine economy, marine ecological civilization construction and participated in global marine governance

as the management department of marine fisheries, the Ministry of agriculture is an integral part of all trade ecology. On the one hand, it continues to develop fishery breeding, solve the problem of food supply, solve the problem of improving people's food nutrition, and solve the problems of employment and poverty. In addition, in terms of fisheries management and control, fisheries should not be allowed to damage the ecosystem of other oceans, but should play a more important role in improving the marine ecological environment

China is a country with a large population and a large fishery. According to Han Xu, deputy director of the fisheries and fisheries administration of the Ministry of agriculture, the Chinese people have solved the problem of "it is difficult to eat fish", which is not solved by fishing, but by aquaculture fisheries

"in the world, 6 of the 10 cultivated fish are raised in China. China's fisheries not only solve the problem of eating fish for China's 1.3 billion people, but also export 4million tons of fish to foreign countries every year, which is the biggest contribution of China's fisheries to the world's marine ecological civilization." According to Han Xu, in addition, 75% of China's aquatic product output also comes from fishery farming

"our oceans will bring more wealth to mankind. 4 at the same time, we also know that the oceans are very fragile. If you treat them badly, they will give you a very bad return," said Su Jilan, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and honorary director of the second Institute of Oceanography of the State Oceanic Administration, "As an important part of the ecosystem, it is very difficult to repair the marine ecosystem, so we should be very cautious."
