Governing the high seas: half of the planet that belongs to us all
Thefinal instalment in a series of three animations from IIED on how nations canmove towards an inclusive blue economy explores how a new global treaty – thefirst of its kind – could end lawlessness that threatens conservation of thehigh seas.
Thisvast stretch of ocean – covering 50% of the planet – falls outside nationalboundaries. Ungoverned, these seas are exposed to widespread abuses such asoverfishing or the dumping of chemical waste and plastic.
Undera project supported by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency(Sida), IIED is working with experts, policymakers and communities to close thegovernance gap in the high seas, replacing it with a new legally binding treatythat protects the high seas and enables the people who depend on it to thrive.
