Atlantic Ocean Communication: Consultation

Atlantic Ocean Consultation WebsiteThe European Commission is currently reflecting on the possible content for a Communication on the Atlantic Ocean. The exercise aims to identify the main challenges faced by the Atlantic area and whether there is added value in developing a specific strategic approach to this marine basin.

Examples of such challenges that might be tackled by an Integrated Maritime Policy for the Atlantic area have been proposed in a Commission non-paper. These include, amongst others, the potential to create transnational coherence through, for example, more clustering synergies and economies of scale; more effective cross border cooperation to deal with environmental hazards and disasters; and a more coherent vision on maritime governance.

The consultation is open until the 15th October. For more information, or to offer your views by completing the Commission´s questionnaire, click here.
