Ocean Action Hub

Portugal organized the Oceans Meeting 2017, including a ministerial segment, in Lisbon on 7-8 September 2017, dedicated to “The Ocean and Human Health”.

In the context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and given the integrated and indivisible nature of the Sustainable Development Goals, there is room for exploring to what extent, and how, the implementation of SDG 14 (Life Below Water) can impact the implementation of SDG 3 (Good Health and Well-being), and in which ways these two can be perceived as interdependent and intricately linked. 

The International Meeting of Ministers of the Sea is the primary focus of this event and aims to discuss common international policies for the Ocean.
