The International Ocean Governance Forum (IOG Forum) provides a platform for ocean actors and stakeholders within and beyond Europe to share understanding, experiences and good practices on ocean governance. 

 

The IOG Forum supports the follow-up and further development of the EU policy on international ocean governance: an agenda for the future of our oceans. The IOG agenda brings 50 cross-cutting actions to ensure clean, healthy, safe, secure and sustainably used oceans. It is an integral part of the European Commission’s Green Deal and the EU’s response to the 2030 Agenda, in particular, the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 14 Life Below Water.

International Ocean Governance Forum- Thematic Working Group webinars - April 22-24, 2020

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to change the format of the International Ocean Governance (IOG) Forum, originally scheduled for 22-24 April in Brussels. Ocean governance cannot wait for viruses to stop from spreading. To do justice to the importance of the subject, we didn’t cancel or postpone the meeting but partially moved to a digital format. 

Start date: 22/04/2020 - 14:00
