At the core of the Our Ocean conferences are voluntary commitments for significant and meaningful actions towards a clean, healthy and productive ocean. Previous conferences have resulted in nearly one thousand commitments. Governments, organisations and businesses are encouraged to announce new and far-reaching actions to the best of our ocean at this year’s conference. Commitments should have significant impact, be measurable and have a clear timeframe.
The fifth Our Ocean Conference in Indonesia strengthened the quality of commitments with a balanced distribution of commitments for each area of action. 305 tangible and measurable commitments, USD 10,7 billion monetary commitments and 14 million km2 of Marine Protected Area.
