Oceans in crisis: Strengthening sustainable governance

16/10/2017 - 12:00 to 14:00
Brussels, Belgium

The EU integrated maritime policy prioritizes blue growth and industrial development in coastal regions, including the promotion of deep-sea mining but lacks strong legal safeguards for ensuring the protection of the deep sea and the rights of coastal communities. The Ocean Atlas 2017 is an educational tool that provides facts and figures on the importance of our marine ecosystems and the urgency of SDG 14.
