CONSULTATIONS: Setting the course for a sustainable blue planet, an update of the international ocean governance agenda

Deadline: 15-02-2022

(Source: European Commission)


Our ocean is facing a state of emergency driven by challenges such as unsustainable use, climate-change-driven ecosystem disruption, pollution and severe biodiversity loss.

Despite the difficulty of governing this shared global good, we need transformative action to achieve effective and integrated ocean governance built on strong partnerships, international cooperation and multilateral dialogue.

EU action on this front should be updated to boost its impact and internal and external visibility.
