Progress against milestone 1.2040.2
High seas and coastal marine protected areas are established and enforced, and marine spatial plans are in place
July 7, 2023

The United Nations adopted the world’s first treaty to protect the high seas and preserve marine biodiversity in international waters. The treaty is key to protecting 30% of the world’s land and sea by 2030.

The treaty will go into effect after it has been ratified by 60 countries. Countries can become signatories after September 20, 2023.
