Launch of the Sustainable Ocean Plan Guide and a new Action Coalition
In 2020, the Ocean Panel set out a new ocean action agenda for the decade to transform humanity’s relationship with and impacts upon the ocean. As the ‘headline’ of this action agenda, Ocean Panel members committed to sustainably manage 100% of the ocean area under national jurisdiction, guided by Sustainable Ocean Plans, by 2025*. They also urged all coastal and ocean states to join this commitment so that by 2030 all ocean areas under national jurisdiction are sustainably managed. A Sustainable Ocean Plan is the foundation for delivering on this commitment.

This event will launch 100% Sustainable Ocean Management: An Introduction to Sustainable Ocean Plans. Commissioned by the Ocean Panel, this guide elaborates on the ‘who, what, when, where, why and how’ of Sustainable Ocean Plans. The event will also launch a new action coalition dedicated to providing the technical and financial assistance countries may need to develop their Sustainable Ocean Plans.

Join us to hear from Ocean Panel country representatives about their experiences in developing Sustainable Ocean Plans, from authors of the newly launched guide, and from members of the new action coalition.

*Countries joining the Ocean Panel effort after 2020 may commit to develop and be guided by Sustainable Ocean Plans within five years of joining, with the aim of sustainably managing 100% of the ocean area under national jurisdiction.
