TWG1 – International Ocean Governance framework

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.

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
