European Union generates global action for our ocean

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 25 ottobre 2017

maltaMalta. More than six billion euros committed by public and private actors to better manage the 70% of the planet – our oceans – at conference hosted by the European Union in Malta. Oceans cover more than 70% of the planet. They produce most of the oxygen we breathe and absorb 30% of the carbon we emit. Three billion people world-wide depend on the ocean for their livelihoods. One billion people rely on seafood as their main source of animal protein. But the oceans face a multitude of threats, such as pollution, climate change, overfishing and criminal activities at sea.
The Our Ocean conferences are a response to these mounting challenges. In preparation of this year’s conference, the EU has successfully been working with governments, private companies and non-profit organisations from a wide range of sectors to mobilise ambitious and measurable commitments to action, ranging from smaller, but high-potential, innovative approaches to industry-scale global undertakings.
Starting in 2014, high-level participants from more than 100 countries have attended the Our Ocean conferences (hosted by the Governments of the United States in 2014 and 2016 and Chile in 2015 and by the European Union in Malta this year), including Heads of State or Government and ministers, companies ranging from large industry and the traditional fisheries sector to Silicon Valley tech, NGOs and philanthropic organisations. They have made over 700 concrete, measurable and tracked commitments. Next year’s conference will be hosted by Indonesia, followed by Norway in 2019.
