Governing the high seas: half of the planet that belongs to us all

Click here to watch the Live Stream at 7pm

The final instalment in a series of three animations from IIED on how nations can move towards an inclusive blue economy explores how a new global treaty – the first of its kind – could end lawlessness that threatens conservation of the high seas.

This vast stretch of ocean – covering 50% of the planet – falls outside national boundaries. Ungoverned, these seas are exposed to widespread abuses such as overfishing or the dumping of chemical waste and plastic.

Under a project supported by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), IIED is working with experts, policymakers and communities to close the governance gap in the high seas, replacing it with a new legally binding treaty that protects the high seas and enables the people who depend on it to thrive.
