Why is the declaration so important?
The Copenhagen Declaration was adopted by 8 ministers on behalf of their countries at UN City, Copenhagen in 2018. It has since garnered support by 28 countries globally and continues to grow.
The Declaration maps out a cooperative goal-oriented political plan to address transnational organized crime in the fisheries sector. It is also the political basis and framework for the Norwegian government’s Blue Justice Initiative. With The Blue Justice Initiative, the Norwegian Government, in cooperation with other large ocean nations and UN organizations, wishes to find lasting solutions to combatting crimes related to our fisheries resources.
The Blue Justice Conference will discuss with colleagues from around the world the way forward towards fostering international cooperation and a sustainable and fair blue economy free from fisheries crime.
