TWG2 – Reducing pressure and sustainable blue economy

The Thematic Working Group (TWG) Reducing pressure on the ocean and seas and creating the conditions for a sustainable blue economy will focus on how the international ocean governance framework is put in practice for tackling key challenges to ensure the ocean is clean, healthy and productive.

For example by: mitigating the harmful effects of climate change; managing ocean food resources sustainably; creating the right conditions for supporting a sustainable blue economy; managing and sharing marine space sustainably (enhancing in particular the coherence and effectiveness of area-based management tools).

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
