The Observatory for Marine and Coastal Governance is a non-partisan civil society organization dedicated to research, ocean literacy, and support to local communities. The Observatory focuses several of its activities on the protection of marine and coastal ecosystems and the communities that inhabit coastal and island territories, as well as peace building based on the protection of a healthy environment.
We are an accredited organization before the United Nations Conference on Oceans.
Our thematic areas are: marine justice and climate action, sustainable artisanal marine fisheries, ocean environmental education and coastal marine governance.
The organization seeks to contribute to the protection of marine and coastal ecosystems and the communities that inhabit the coastal and insular territory.
By 2030, the organization will be a benchmark in marine and coastal governance and marine justice, and will have contributed to the implementation of SDG 14, in particular the target on ensuring artisanal fishers' access to biodiversity and fair markets.
