Sustainable development — Fisheries — Marine environment, protection

This chapter focuses on the fifty actions proposed by the European Commission and its High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy in three priority areas to ensure safe, secure, clean and sustainably managed oceans: improving the international ocean governance framework; reducing pressure on oceans and seas and creating the conditions for a sustainable blue economy; and strengthening international ocean research and data. It also considers a number of policy proposals put forward by the EU with a view to improving the international ocean governance framework. Finally, it discusses the role of the EU in shaping international ocean governance on the basis of its experience in developing a sustainable approach to ocean management, notably through its environment policy, integrated maritime policy, reformed common fisheries policy, and its maritime transport policy.
