The Thematic Working Group (TWG) Improving the international ocean governance framework focuses on key opportunities and points of action in which the EU can play a leading role to strengthen international ocean governance. It will address issues such as: gaps in the international ocean governance framework; ocean governance in a fast-changing climate; the potential for coordination and cooperation to strengthen the ocean governance framework; and preconditions for effective ocean governance including individual and institutional capacities and stakeholder engagement.
