When managed sustainably the ocean and its resources will deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals and provide vital solutions to pressing challenges such as poverty, hunger, health issues and energy supply.

The High-Level Panel for a Sustainable Ocean Economy, co-chaired by Norway and Palau, has provided a path to building an ocean economy where effective protection, sustainable production and equitable prosperity go hand in hand. That is why sustainable ocean management is a major priority in our development cooperation and bilateral relations. Concrete actions by governments, the private sector and local actors that harness the potential of the ocean while protecting its health are needed. It is not possible to envisage a more equitable and resilient future without a just distribution of and access to ocean resources while at the same time protecting the marine ecosystems.
