A Call To Protect Our Pacific Ocean

The Pacific Parliamentarians’ Alliance on Deep Sea Mining (PPADSM) is a collective of Pacific leaders who share the strong concern to protect the ocean in light of the rush by large corporations, backed by powerful governments to mine the ocean floor for minerals before regulatory governance structures and measures are put in place.

UN OCEANS CONFERENCE 2022

The side-event presented the voices of political leaders from Small Island Developing States (SIDS) on the currents of ocean governance, and the need for new global political commitments, a 'Pardo 2.0'. At the United Nations Oceans Conference (UNOC) 2022, we have a chance to remind member states of what it means to govern the ‘global commons’, more generally referred to as our ‘common heritage’, our ocean. It means safeguarding the health and future of all ecologies, including humankind, and generations to come from unsustainable modes of living and economic development.
