Last March 2nd, at the Our Ocean Conference in Panama, the EU is confirming its strong engagement for international ocean governance by announcing  39 commitments for action for the year 2023. These actions will be funded by €816.5 million. This is one of the biggest amounts ever announced by the EU since the start of the Our Ocean conferences in 2014. The theme of the 2023 edition is ‘Our Ocean, Our Connection', which calls for new commitments and joint efforts worldwide in support of a secure, clean and sustainably managed ocean.
