Healthy Oceans and Seas: A Way Forward
Panel discussion organized on the occasion of the eighth session of the Open Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals, hosted by Italy and Palau, together with the Sustainable Oceans Alliance and the Global Partnerships Forum, in cooperation with the UN Department of Public Information.
