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).
