EU leadership in the new model of international ocean governance

The European Commission has adopted a program to improve the governance of the oceans that establishes measures for the security, protection, cleanliness of the oceans and the sustainability of its management.

The European Union (EU) considers it necessary to “further develop and better apply” the current oceans regulation, addressing areas outside national jurisdictions or implementing internationally agreed sustainable development objectives. The EU will also launch a pilot project to control illegal fishing worldwide using satellite communications.
