Also launched was the new guide, 100% Sustainable Ocean Management: An Introduction to Sustainable Ocean Plans to support countries get started on, or accelerate, sustainable ocean planning.
Towards a Sustainable Ocean Economy
The ocean gives us life. It feeds us, entertains us, connects us, inspires us and powers our success.
Our well-being depends on a healthy ocean. It always has. It always will.
The pressures on the ocean are intense and growing – but we know recovery is possible. Crucially, a healthy ocean holds the solutions to many of the world’s challenges.
Putting sustainability at the heart of ocean management is essential for protection, production and prosperity that benefits people, nature and the economy.
Ocean Panel country members have put forward a new ocean action agenda underpinned by the aim to sustainably manage 100% of the ocean area under national jurisdiction.
Join the Ocean Panel in calling on more world leaders and other partners to do the same. The ocean gives us so much. Let’s give it 100%.
A Vision of Protection, Production and Prosperity
In a sustainable ocean economy, effective protection, sustainable production and equitable prosperity go hand in hand to create a triple win for people, nature and the economy.
