Healthy and clean seas provide numerous ecosystem services which are critical for our survival and wellbeing. Marine pollution is a global environmental and socio-economic challenge that requires urgent attention.
The integration of sustainability-focused agendas and circular economy principles and practices is essential to eliminate emissions and impacts from marine pollution. This will have both positive and negative consequences for numerous economic sectors at multiple scales. Ending marine pollution therefore requires the active collaboration across stakeholder groups and regions.
The overall aim of SOS-ZEROPOL2030 is to develop a holistic zero pollution framework that will guide the EU towards achieving zero pollution in European seas by 2030. The project is funded by the European Union’s Horizon Europe programme under grant agreement No. 101060213.
The SOS-ZEROPOL2030 project will be delivered through six distinct work packages (WPs) which, collaboratively, make this project truly interdisciplinary.
WP2: Building Blocks for Zero Pollution Governance WP2 will provide an overview of Zero Pollution governance in the EU including relevant legislation and policy processes
