The Global Ocean Alliance (GOA) champions ambitious ocean action within the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).

In particular, the GOA supports the target to protect at least 30% of the global ocean in Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) and Other Effective area-based Conservation Measures (OECMs) by 2030. This is known as the ‘30by30 target’.

MPAs and OECMs will provide a higher level of protection than currently exists and allow both the marine environment and sustainable marine economies to thrive.
