Breaking News: the European Parliament has voted in favor of EU ratification of the High Seas Treaty today at 13:00 CET!

This marks a significant milestone in the ratification process. The Parliament’s decision will now undergo formal adoption by the Council, paving the way for the EU to deposit its “instrument of ratification” at the United Nations (UN).

While this step does not constitute ratification on its own, it sets the stage for individual EU member states to ratify the treaty collectively.

This development is celebrated by the High Seas Alliance, emphasizing its importance in advancing sustainable ocean management goals. #DOALOS #SDG14 #CBD #IUCN
