EU proposes action to boost international ocean governance

A Joint Communication proposing actions for safe, secure, clean and sustainably managed oceans has been adopted by the European Commission and the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Federica Mogherini. The initiative would make it possible to address certain global challenges such as climate change, poverty, food security, piracy, crime, trafficking in human beings, through better protected and sustainably managed oceans, whose economy has been estimated at EUR 1.3 trillion. "With this Joint Communication, we confirm our engagement to be at the frontline in the implementation of the United Nations' 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, for the benefit of EU citizens and the whole world,” pointed out Mogherini. In her view, attempts to assert territorial or maritime claims are affecting regional stability and the global economy and it is necessary to use all the tools available to shape ocean governance and make it more part of the European Union's external action. “This is also a concrete example of how the EU Global Strategy for foreign and security policy delivers in practice," she claimed.
