E-course- Marine Pollution and Oceanic Conservation

UNEP creates an introductory e-course focusing on the international legal framework on marine pollution

The Earth's oceans are vast and complex ecosystems, and the legal framework for protecting them is similarly intricate, involving numerous international agreements. To support understanding of oceanic conservation mechanisms, InforMEA, a project of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) Information and Knowledge Management Initiative, has created an e-course focusing on the international legal framework on marine pollution. It helps users to wade through a complicated governance “oceanscape” through the lens of agreements on marine pollution.

This policy update reveals how the e-course creates clarity and understanding of oceanic conservation with regard to pollution, and explores how improved understanding of the international framework for marine pollution supports the conservation and protection of marine ecosystems.
