Breaking Laws on the Sea
This webinar explores the trade-offs and current innovative approaches to securing our oceans, while preserving the ability of people to benefit from sustainable ocean use.
As we emphasise efforts to restore and protect our oceans and fulfil the objectives of SDG14, we will need to think about the interface between crime and the use of the ocean. Wildlife crime is an obvious threat to sustainability goals with the perennial question being: how do we prevent illegal activity while enabling other ocean uses and investments? Yet, still, the ocean is a site of other illegal activities, such as trafficking, piracy and smuggling, that increase the complexity of managing and regulating our oceans.
