UNEP Regional Seas Programme

The Regional Seas Conventions and Action Plans - the world's only legal framework for protecting the oceans and seas at the regional level - celebrate their landmark 40th anniversary in 2014. As the world transitions to an inclusive green economy and looks towards the post-2015 development agenda, countries will continue to rely on the Regional Seas Programme "shared seas" approach to help restore the health, productivity and resilience of oceans and marine ecosystems, and to maintain their biodiversity.
