WHO FCTC Conference Of Parties Adopts New Decision On Curbing Tobacco's Environmental Impacts, But Sidesteps E-Cigarettes

The Tenth Conference of Parties (COP10) of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC) did not reach a decision on regulating e-cigarettes and heated tobacco products, despite increasing industry pressure. However, the conference did adopt a milestone decision on strengthening language around Article 18, which focuses on the protection of the environment in relation to tobacco cultivation and manufacture. The parties also agreed to strengthen Article 19, which holds the tobacco industry accountable for its impact on health and the environment.
