Question for oral answer O-000031/2017
to the Commission
Rule 128
Linnéa Engström, on behalf of the Committee on Fisheries

 Subject: High-Level UN Conference to Support the Implementation of SDG 14 (UN Ocean Conference)
 Answer in plenary 

This year (June 2017), there will be a High-Level UN Conference to Support the Implementation of SDG 14 (UN Ocean Conference). This is a unique opportunity to engage in an international process to improve global governance of the oceans. The EU has helped several third countries to improve their fisheries management and control through the Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing regulation.

In this context, the Commission is asked:

– How is the Commission contributing to the full implementation of the SDG14?

– How will the EU promote, in the context of the UN Ocean Conference, a comprehensive approach to combating and eliminating IUU fishing activities, and how will it engage in establishing an equitable global governance of the oceans?

– Will the Commission (and the VP/HR, who is also involved in ocean governance) take measures to ensure better coordination between the fight against IUU fishing and trade and market policy?
